FIRST Robotics

FIRST Team 1708, headquartered at McKeesport Area High School strives to promote student involvement in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math using higher order and critical thinking skills to design, construct and program mechanical robotics for participation in US FIRST robotics competitions and community outreach activities. Here at Team 1708, Amp’d Robotics, we define success by not only winning at the Regional competitions, but also by the success of our students in their education, and because of this, we’ve been extremely lucky in our quest for success.
