The Bishop-Wisecarver Group (BWG) has continued its dedication of supporting STEM initiatives with FIRST as a Diamond Supplier of this year’s robotics competition.
BWG is also sponsoring three Northern California high school robotics teams, capturing the students’ and mentors’ experiences on their company blog and sharing through social media channels.
The FIRST Robotics Competition is designed to engage hands-on learning, said Kan, which develops a student’s preparedness for both higher education as well as future technical career opportunities.
The FIRST competition combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology for students across the globe every year. Under strict rules, limited resources, and tight deadlines, teams are tasked with raising funds, designing a team brand, developing a strategy, and building a robot to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors. Thousands of mentors and sponsors donate time, money, and resources to students.
With thousands of teams competing in the 2013 FIRST program, Bishop-Wisecarver Group is excited about rooting for their sponsored California-based teams: Fembots #692 from St. Francis High School, Robodogs #2085 from Vacaville High School, and Patriots #3470 from Heritage High School.
