Multimedia and Videos

Welcome to our extensive multimedia video galleries, where you can find dozens of videos from our team's history. But not all of these videos are just short clips, such as the millions on YouTube. Many of these videos have been cut and edited into short films between three and ten minutes long. As of late, we have even begun to take our video production to an even higher professional level, now filming everything in 16:9 widescreen. So from comedy to serious, technical to public relations, enjoy these many videos from our team's history!

About Gus

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.
