R.A.V.E.N.: Robotic And Vehicular Engineering by Nerds
RAVEN Robotics, Team 1288, is the FIRST Robotics team for the Francis Howell School District’s high school students in, St. Charles, Missouri. Students from all three high schools in the district work together to improve themselves and their community through the use of science, technology, engineering, and mathematic principles. The primary means of accomplishing this mission is to compete in the FIRST Robotics Competition each spring. Students gain hands on training in engineering design, construction, programming, electrical systems, entrepreneurship, and marketing.
We were established in 2004 and are composed of many teachers, students, parents, and volunteers. We continue to grow each year, and as we grow we reach out more and more to the community to teach others the importance of science and technology in our society. Here at RAVEN Robotics, we don’t focus our attention primarily on winning; we try to be a successful team composed of a diverse group of students who work together to create something more than just a robot. We create experiences that will last a lifetime and make a positive impact on our culture by training the next generation of engineers. We prepare ourselves for the fast-pace of the engineering world. We build relationships as well as mechanical devices. Together as a unified team, there is nothing we cannot do.
