Did you know that Minnesota has more FIRST robotics teams than hockey teams? It's true! FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science & Technology) designs accessible, innovative programs to build self-confidence, knowledge, and life skills while motivating young people to pursue opportunities in science, technology, and engineering. Members from The Technocrats 2239, the Hopkins High School robotics team, visited to share their story. They are one of the longest sustaining robotics teams in the state, and have a vision to not only compete at a high level, but also to mentor and inspire students in the younger grades.
