BUILDING ROBOTS AND THE COMMUNITY

Our Mission

Mission statement - to support science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education by providing educational and financial support to local high school students at Walt Whitman High School participating in robotics based competitions at the local and national levels

A Little Bit About Us

Team 1389’s rookie year was 2004, and The Body Electric is excited to be entering our 17th season in 2019-2020. The team started with only a few students and one teacher as an after school extra-curricular activity.  The team has grown to approximately 45 students and 6 mentors, still running as an after-school extra-curricular activity at Walt Whitman High School. Team 1389 has expanded over the years and for the last 3 years has run a year-round program. In the Fall, team members work with mentors to learn and/or increase their knowledge base. This is done through demonstrations, hands on learning, building and attending tech lectures provided by mentors. Having this learning time has been invaluable to the team so that build seasons are able to be started with many members having build knowledge as well as FIRST knowledge.

‚Äč

Team 1389 participates in many robotics demonstrations, hosting open lab evenings for the larger community, attending events such as KIDFest, and visiting preschools, elementary, and middle schools to bring the excitement of FIRST and robotics to many. In the past four years, Team 1389 has been host to 3 FRC District events and 2 FTC events and plans to host more events.
