Links and Resources
With billions of pages on the Internet, it can often be difficult to find good websites with great content. While popular search engines, such as Google, may help people find what they are looking for, it is often through links pages or word of mouth that people 'stumble upon' wonderful websites.
Here, we have provided useful links to many important websites and resources for anyone interested or involved in FIRST. In addition to our these usedul links, we have also provided links to every other FRC team in the State of Connecticut, so as to help you locate our fellow FRC teams.

At Team 228, we strive to have a high quality website. Although we periodically make sure all of these links are still active, sometimes websites and URLs change. If you do notice that any of these links no longer work, please contact our webmaster. We'd love to fix it as soon as possible!
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.
