What we're all about...
For the first year ever, Alma High School is taking part in the FIRST Robotics program. FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is an organization dedicated to connecting students to technology by challenging them to construct a robot that must perform a series of tasks. To construct this robot, teams are provided with a variety of materials and tools to guide them.
FIRST has given students of Alma High School the opportunity to participate in a extra-curricular club that is unlike any other. Nicknamed 'Team Pheonix,' the club has challenged students in their math, science, programming, and design knowledge, creating an optimal learning experience.
As this being Alma High School's first year, Team Pheonix has pulled aboard several mentors from the Alma community who work as engineers to guide students in the building process. Under the direction of Gary Shimunek and Steve Kettler, students are fired up to compete in the 2011 competition, Logomotion!
