FIRST Robotics

  • About Us

    What is FIRST Robotics? FIRST Robotics is a competitive team sport for your mind. FIRST Robotics is a Organization in which high school students build a programmed robot, and compete in a theme with and against other robots. Teams must also market themselves and find their own sponsors. We compete in the FRC Robotics Competition.

    Team Nickname: Steel Talons
    Who are the Steel Talons you may be asking? The Steel Talons is the team name chosen by the Mill Creek FIRST Robotics team after the first two years, to represent the strength of spirit of our team in addition to our school spirit for our Hawks. Our team is composed of all different talents because we believe everybody brings something to the table. We have different teams for programming, mechanical, safety, electrical, and marketing. Each team works within their specialization but then we come together to be greater as a whole.

    We are very grateful to our Platinum level sponsors: GCPS and Infinite Energy.
