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 only to post as 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, events, and robots becomes ever increasingly paramount.
Whether you're looking for technical photos of our various robot transmissions, or social photos of our team members promoting FIRST in the community, our custom student-designed photo galleries make it easy and fun.

Gus Robotics Team 228 was founded in 1999 to bring the excitement and inspiration of the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) to students from Meriden, CT. Since then, our program has grown into a nationally-recognized robotics team for students from five different high schools in Meriden and Wallingford, CT.
Through our involvement in FRC and VRC, we introduce and inspire students to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Mentors from a wide variety of fields including teaching, engineering (mechanical, electrical, robotics), computer science, machinists, technicians, business executives and more, teach students relevant real-world experience and applications.
We've also built strong relationships with our local school district, businesses and organizations to help provide our students the best possible experience; these sponsors are crucial to our long-term success.
Recent graduates from our program have won over quarter million dollars in scholarships, and have gone onto a variety of careers in STEM fields.
