Our FRC (FIRST Robotics Competitions) team was founded in 2008 by Rick Riccardi, a parent looking for change. Our very first year our team won the “Rookie All Star” award at a local competition. From our small beginnings in a closet 12 years ago, our team has grown to over 50 regular members from Prospect High School. 

Our team constantly strives to reach out and encourage STEM education in our community and further. We hope to use our knowledge of technical skills to help local groups, as well as inspire others to get involved with STEM. Continually growing, our team hopes to create more teams in our community and create the change that we want to see.
