Fremont High Robotics greatly supports the ideal of a student-driven team. We are proud of having the student body design, build, and test the robot rather than rely on our adult mentors. We value student leadership, initiative, teamwork, and respect within the team as well as among the local FIRST teams. To ensure that the team runs smoothly and efficiently, the organization are split into subteams managed by a Student Leadership Council. The subteams are categorized into technical and non-technical. At the beginning of the training season, students may choose one technical subteam (Mechanical, Electrical, Software) and/or one non-technical subgroup (Business, Media, Events) to develop their respective skills.
As a non-profit organization, the Fremont Robotics team relies on community support. In return, team members give back to the community by participating in robot demonstrations and hosting events at local schools and companies, providing the opportunity for young minds to explore their interest in science and technology.
The Firebots are organized into subteams that are categorized into technical and non-technical. Since the establishment of 3 FTC teams at Fremont High Robotics, we have recruited members to specialize in either technical, non-technical, or in some cases, both areas!
Our FTC and FRC teams teach students the importance of STEAM and robotics skills. The 3 FTC teams not only help prepare students for competitive robotics, but also provide more hands-on opportunities. Moreover, FTC helps students explore, develop a deep understanding, and learn skills of the various sub-teams: Design, Manufacturing, Electrical, Software, and Business and Marketing. The three FTC teams are also introduced to the importance of outreach and educating our community about STEM.
If FTC students excel in their respective subteams or demonstrate the ability to collaborate in larger teams with more specializations, then these students are invited to join the FRC team. This is very important because it ensures that students already have prior knowledge about robotics, STEM, and outreach before joining the more competitive FRC.
The FRC team then furthers teaches students certain skills that are fundamental in robotics. There are 4 technical subteams that often collaborate with each other. The non-technical division, Business and Marketing, is responsible for the team’s finances, outreach events, and team imagery. The BaM team works to enlighten the community about STEAM. This team structure allows students to specialize in a certain subteam, while also giving them the flexibility to participate in different types of projects.
