Welcome to our interactive events calendar and team notification system! Here, one can find the dates for all of our upcoming meetings, competitions, and other team activities, as well as almost all of our archived events going back to late 2004. Designed and coded by students of Team 228, our new events calendar system was designed to quickly and efficiently schedule upcoming team events.
Since events are pointless unless people are notified of them, our new events calendar also automagically emails all our team members and mentors whenever a new event is added, an event's details are updated, or when an event is canceled. All in all, our events calendar system was designed so we spend less time sending our emails, and more time building our team, inspiring students, or promoting FIRST.

Gus Robotics Team 228 was founded in 1999 to bring the excitement and inspiration of the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) to students from Meriden, CT. Since then, our program has grown into a nationally-recognized robotics team for students from five different high schools in Meriden and Wallingford, CT.
Through our involvement in FRC and VRC, we introduce and inspire students to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Mentors from a wide variety of fields including teaching, engineering (mechanical, electrical, robotics), computer science, machinists, technicians, business executives and more, teach students relevant real-world experience and applications.
We've also built strong relationships with our local school district, businesses and organizations to help provide our students the best possible experience; these sponsors are crucial to our long-term success.
Recent graduates from our program have won over quarter million dollars in scholarships, and have gone onto a variety of careers in STEM fields.
