FIRST Robotics Team 3528, Up Next, is gearing up for the 2013-2014 season. We will be holding a Recruiting/Information Night for 8th-12th graders and their parents on Thursday, August 1 at the Metropolitan Community College- Business and Technology Campus (1775 Universal Avenue, KCMO). The evening will begin at 7:00 pm in room TC200. Enter at the first (south) entrance by the awning and go upstairs. Team members in pink shirts will be there to welcome you.
FIRST stands for For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology. The primary focus of FIRST is to encourage young people to pursue STEM related activities. They accomplish this by designing competitions which require hands on learning- and are really, really fun.
Up Next is a team primarily composed of high school aged homeschooled students, who compete against other area high schools both in the KC area and around the country (even world). Eighth graders are welcomed if their maturity level is sufficient to handle the responsibility and commitment.
In its three year history, Up Next has received many awards for its work both on and off of the competition field. We participate in many community outreach events in order to spread the word about FIRST and its mission. Please visit our website, www.teamupnext.com, to learn more about our team and FIRST.
