Gearmasters Going To the FTC World Championship

We are team 8365 Gearmasters from Forest Hills, New York. We are a high school level robotics team participating in the FIRST Program. FIRST encourages teams to develop skills within STEM, as well as leadership, teamwork, business planning and community interaction. We will be 1 of 5 teams representing New York City at the World Championship in Detroit on April 24th to 27th.  We competed in 3 qualifier tournaments in order to advance to the World Championship. During these competitions, we have won various awards including Inspire Award for overall performance and Think Award for our engineering notebook.  

Throughout the season we performed many community outreach activities to spread the values of FIRST. This includes going to Nepal to teach STEM to 3rd grade students. We presented to international student from over a dozen countries at the UNIS-United Nations conference. We were also interviewed and demonstrated our robot live on PIX 11 local news, and held multiple mock tournaments for younger, local teams to help them gain experience.

Unlike most teams, we are a non-profit community-based team composed of members from various neighborhoods and schools. Because of that, we don’t have a source of funding nor are we supported or associated with a school. We would greatly appreciate any efforts to help make our experience at the World Championships possible.
