FIRST and Team 228 are about more than just robots. Although our team has been a relatively small one (with less than twenty students and seven mentors) for the past several years, our team has been likened to one big family. Most of our team members are good friends, and everyone loves coming to robotics.

One of the great things about Team 228 are our adult mentors, who come from a diverse background of professions including mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, high school teacher (physics), machining and more. Without the invaluable experience provide by our team mentors, our team would not be able to exist.
