Our Progress

It has always been a habit of many people to keep a journal of their personal lives. For the past two years, the Our Progress pages of our website have been a sort of mini-blog where we would post our progress each day of the build season.

Although we did not keep daily records of our progress prior to 2005, we have begun a tradition that we will continue each year after this. Another one of the reasons why we have begun keeping a daily journal of our progress each build season is for other FIRST teams to have an external reference off, to be able to better gauge if they are on/ahead/behind schedule.

About Gus

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.
