Team 1644 - The ROBO-SKUNKS 

"We Can Do, Make, Be... Anything!"

 

So what is FIRST Robotics?                           (VIDEO)

“Dubbed a varsity Sport for the Mind,™ FRC combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. Under strict rules, limited resources, and time limits, teams of 25 students or more are challenged to raise funds, design a team “brand,” hone teamwork skills, and build and program a robot to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors. It’s as close to “real world” engineering as a student can get.”

We are starting our 13th season as a FIRST, FRC Robotics Team. We have learned to celebrate our successes and overcome our  obstacles and failures. We have learned that not everyone can "Win", but we can all grow and succeed. As members of the Robo-Skunks we are challenged socially, academically and economically, but we continue to persist and continue to succeed.  Read More

Community Involvement is part of being a member of the Robotics Team. Team members are expected to participate in 75 hours of community service per year. The activites listed are only a few of the areas of service our team members participate in.

Supporting Other Teams 
"Gracious Professionalism"

We have been supporting and promoting the message of FIRST for quite some time now. In 2009 a Team from Chile, 2576 Chilean Heart,  sent a general email to the Los Angeles area teams, looking for someone to provide them area support. We were the only team to respond; "We are team 1644, we are an inner-city team, we don't have much, but we are willing to share what we have." Since we have supported teams in Brazil, Mexico, as well as 8 local teams.     Read More

We have made a list of sites that are quite useful. IIncluded is local vendors we have found to be quite affordable.  Read More
