Our Robotics Organization
2023 - 2024 3501 Condensed Business Plan

Fremont High Robotics greatly supports the idea of a student-driven team with student leadership, initiative, teamwork, and respect within the team. To ensure that the team runs smoothly and efficiently, the organization is organized between its technical and non-technical teams. The individual competition teams (3501 Firebots, 16532 Sparkbots, and 16533 Infernobots) each have a Mechanical Design, Mechanical Manufacturing, and Software subteam. Electrical is a technical subteam specific to the Firebots. The non-technical Business and Marketing team consists of three divisions (Media, Events, and Business) working organization-wide with members from every competition team that split their time between technical and non-technical.

Our Core Values
  • We Not Me
    Team Over Individual Team over individual Always consider: “How will this help or affect the team?” Contribute to the team’s needs Seek and respect input from others Delegate to share responsibility and positive experiences Address accomplishments as a communal effort, using the pronoun "we" Community Engagement Find ways to help others succeed through STEAM Do not focus solely on becoming successful as an individual, work towards the team's success
  • Be Courageous
    Embody excellence in yourself, in our team, and in everything we produce Question actions that are inconsistent with our values, even when it is not what others want to hear Be candid, with kindness Take smart risks Learn from failure Share ideas confidently
  • Everybody Belongs
    Respect everyone Create and support an inclusive environment where everyone feels that they belong Debate ideas, not people Uplift your teammates regardless of differences in opinion and identity Invite others to participate Check in on your peers
  • Act with Integrity
    Do the right thing, especially when inconvenient Own up to mistakes and errors and work towards fixing them Operate with openness Be direct, but professional Remind and support each other in maintaining these values
