Gearcats, team 6500, was established in 2016 at Millbrook High School as an offshoot of the school’s Mad Scientists Club in order to promote knowledge of emerging technologies and provide a forum for students with STEM skills which were not being stimulated by the curriculum.

This is our first year as a competing FRC team.We decided to split our team into four sub-teams: Electrical, Programming, Marketing, and Mechanical. Electrical Team¬†handles wiring and the actual “guts” of the robot, Programming takes care of all programming (of course). Marketing deals with all of the non-robot based tasks our team had to complete this includes tasks such as creating and designing a team website, designing a banner and t-shirts. Mechanical dealt with the designing the robot and putting the robot together.
