Founded in 2005, FIRST Team 1708, known as Amp'd Robotics, emerged as a pioneering force in the Greater Pittsburgh area's competitive robotics landscape. Established with the vision of inspiring a passion for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) among local students, Amp'd Robotics has consistently demonstrated a commitment to fostering innovation and collaboration. Over the years, the team has actively participated in the FIRST Robotics Competition, FIRST Tech Challenge and FIRST Lego League, engaging students in hands-on robotics challenges that not only enhance technical skills but also instill crucial values such as teamwork, leadership, and gracious professionalism. Amp'd Robotics has become synonymous with excellence, achieving success both on and off the competition field, and leaving an indelible mark on the local STEM education community. Team 1708, Amp'd Robotics, has been on an inspiring journey with the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) programs, marking over a decade of impactful participation. Since its inception, the team has become a dynamic force, not only in robotics competitions but also in fostering a deep-seated commitment to STEM education, community engagement, and inclusivity. This meeting will discuss the metrics of the program; from the schools we encompass to the three different levels of programs we offer along with the skills we are able to teach the students that go through the program.
