ABOUT US

Spare Parts Robotics "SPR" est. 2016 is a community based FIRST FTC team designing, building and programming robots that compete in the Fox Valley North Robotics League. Our team is made up of High School and Jr. High School kids from several different schools in the surrounding area and our focus is on engaging teenagers in developing skills in the STEAM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math).

As part of our ongoing philosophy each team member will participate in learning and leading new roles (i.e. designing/building, engineering/math concepts, programing/coding, game strategy, team branding/social media, robot drivers, CAD, etc...). SPR brings a variety of skills and talents together to form a fun team focused on learning, sharing experiences and personal growth. Several of our alumni have earned FIRST scholarships and are pursuing degrees in engineering, computer science and information technology just to name a few.

Our theme for this year is AIM for the Future. AIM stands for Aspire, Innovate, and Motivate. Our team aspires to learn and enhance our STEM skills while having fun along the way. Our team is motivated to innovate our robot design, code, and the way we approach and solve problems.
