Welcome, we are Team 484, otherwise known as "Roboforce," a high school robotics team that competes in US FIRST Robotics competitions. The team builds its robot during a six week build period, when mentors and students work together to create a robot capable of playing the respective year's game. We are—above everything—a great program that inspires students to do more with their lives and educations, such as going into the engineering or scientific fields. FIRST and Team 484 teach important technical knowledge, teamwork, and dedication to their members. Team involvement also strengthens students' life skills, particularly their organization and their capacity for hard work. Participation on a FIRST team also makes our students prime candidates for many colleges and universities, and allows them to receive scholarships that are otherwise inaccessible. Being a member of our team is a privilege that is treasured by our students and enjoyed by our mentors.
