The Millbrook Gearcats, FRC 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. We exist to grow and nurture STEM skills in a positive environment, create a successful and functional robot, and provide inspiration to our community.

FIRST Robotics Competition was founded in 1989 and commits to inspiring students in STEM fields. FIRST offers unique programs for students from Kindergarten to high school. These programs work to help teach students helpful technical skills and life skills such as teamwork and leadership.
