Behind the 'Bots

Behind every robot is a story. A story of late nights, endless programming, and a rush to get everything done in only six weeks. Learn more about the design, fabrication, and achievements of each of our robots from our rookie year's bot to our latest robot, Gus 9.

Team Pictures

Team Pictures

If a picture is worth a thousand words, entire encyclopedias can be filled from our photo galleries. At Team 228, we like to document practically everything we do, and not for the sole sake of having pictures on our website. As FIRST continues to grow and expand every year, new students come and graduate, mentors come and retire, and documenting our team's history becomes ever increasing paramount.

We take pride in that our website has well over three thousand pictures in our photo galleries dating from our rookie year in 1999 to our nine and current year of 2007. Read more...

Multimedia and Videos

Multimedia and Videos

Welcome to our extensive multimedia video galleries, where you can find dozens of videos from our team's history. But not all of these videos are just short clips, such as the millions on YouTube. Many of these videos have been cut and edited into short films between three and ten minutes long. As of late, we have begun to take our video production to an even higher professional level, now filming everything in 16:9 widescreen. So from comedy to serious, technical to public relations, enjoy these many videos from our team's history! Read more...

Document Library

Document Library

One of the key components of FIRST is the collaboration between teams to share knowledge. Unlike traditional sports, in which one only cares about his or her own team, FIRST stresses gracious professionalism among teams. In order to help other FIRST teams, our students and mentors have written several articles and white papers to assist other teams.

In addition to several white papers written by students and mentors of Team 228, our Document Library is also a growing repository of dozens and dozens of historical Team 228 and FIRST Documents, with many more on the way! Read more...
