When team 148, the Robowranglers, was founded twenty-six years ago, no one could imagine the impact it would have on our school, community, and most importantly, team members. Since its inception, our team has been on a mission to spread a passion for STEM throughout our hometown of Greenville, TX. During the past few years our pursuit has expanded both nationally and globally. From small demos in our cafeteria to FRC events halfway across the world, we demonstrate our commitment and passion for FIRST and STEM.
Through our partnership with our sponsors, school district, and community we believe we successfully spread FIRST's values of inspiring young people to be leaders, OUR efforts drive students of all ages to develop and explore their interest in science and technology. Our exciting and engaging, vertically aligned robotics curriculum ensures team members enter high school with overwhelming amounts of knowledge and passion. Whether in our school own school or across the globe, we leave everyone we meet with qualities that FIRST values most: confidence, vision, and the tools to shape their own future.
Local: The Robowranglers run elementary school demos, summer camps and multiple robotics tournaments. The Robowranglers also had a key role in passing a $79 Million bond to help start STEM programs within our school district.
State: Robowrangler students attended the first, founders STEM Advocacy Conference of Texas or SACOT. We also attend TASA or Texas Association of School Administrators.
The Robowranglers are organized around the philosophy of "professionalism at all times". This is maintained through our organization, time management and mutual respect for our team members and those around us. We work to ensure all students feel heard and that they can offer insight that they feel matters.
