What's Gus?

Gus Robotics Team 228 is the FIRST Robotics Team for the three Meriden, Connecticut High Schools (Platt, Maloney, and Wilcox Tech). Since 1999, we have been inspiring students into the world of science, technology, and engineering through the annual FIRST Robotics Competition and the FIRST Tech Challenge. But our inspiration does not simply end after students graduate from high school; to further their secondary (college) education, there are over nine million dollars in scholarships available to FIRST students, with many of these full ride scholarships to some of the world's most prestigious schools.
