Team 3239 is based at NUAMES High School located in Layton, Utah. We are composed of 6 sub-teams that work together throughout the year on various tasks: Programming, Build, Chairmen's, Electrical, Marketing, and Safety Team. Together, we always get the job done in a professional and complete manner.
"The mission of FIRST is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting Mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership."
We follow this mission by participating in community events such as Ogden's George S. Eccles Dinosaur Park's Carnivore Carnival, Winter Palooza in Salt Lake City. We have spearheaded the creation of a collaborative multi FRC team organization. Furthermore, we have volunteered at various K-12 schools to promote a passion for STEM.
FIRST is an international, not-for-profit organization that was founded in 1989 in Manchester, NH. FIRST had goals to inspire younger people to become interested in STEM. The organization currently has four programs that support their goal.
The main mission of FIRST is to inspire interest in STEM. They also emphasize innovation, teamwork, leadership, communication, confidence, and pursuing education and opportunities. These skills help prepare young people for the job opportunities that have been rapidly increasing recently.
The four programs that FIRST has are, FIRST LEGO League (Jr. FLL and FLL), FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC), and FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC). Team 3239 is a FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) team. Every year, thousands of teams come up with a unique solution to the game of the year. Teams design, build, test, and compete with their unique game solution every year. They compete in local, regional, and even world competitions.
