ABOUT OUR TEAM

We are a sustainable urban team that seeks to increase diversity and inclusion in FIRST, as well as the sustainability and success of urban FIRST teams. In the past 5 years, the team has attended over 160 events to share the benefits of FIRST, totaling over 9,000 hours of community outreach, and reaching 100,000 people. We aim to change the face of STEM and show that anyone, regardless of who they are, has a place in FIRST. We have cultivated symbiotic mutual partnerships with corporations and community organizations over the years. With our partners we work together on common initatives to increase involvement and interest in STEM.
Gracious Professionalism is a core value of our team, and we personify it in everything we do. From providing a tool shop at regional competitions, to welcoming new teams to our local regional, we seek to help any team in any way we possibly can. Our team has earned six Regional Engineering Inspiration Awards and two Regional Chairman's Awards in our ten years as a team, attending both the Atlanta and St. Louis Championship Locations.

OUR MISSION

FIRST Team 2500 Herobotics strives to change the face of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), by inspiring underrepresented youth to reach for new heights, discover their limitless potential, and pursue their dreams. We show that anyone, regardless of who they are, can follow their interests in STEM. All it takes is tenacity, passion, and a solid blueprint for their future. By breaking down barriers and giving urban youth the tools to succeed, we are elevating diversity and inclusion in FIRST and building the future generation of engineers, creators, and leaders.

"To transform our culture by creating a world where science and technology are celebrated and where young people dream of becoming science and technology heroes."
