About SMbly Required
SMbly Required high school robotics team was founded in 2015 to provide students with
the unique experience of working as an engineering team to build a robot and compete
at the world level.
Our team is given six weeks at the beginning of the year to build a robot to meet the challenge at hand, which is completely different each year. Members of the team can be involved in a variety of wars, be it business, engineering, programming, marketing, manufacturing, or community outreach – there is always a place for a student within our team. Through our program, students will be challenged with making decisions, will learn life-long skills such as obtaining certifications for computer-aided design, gaining programming experience, and working in a business-like environment at an early age. Through FIRST robotics, students gain access to over $50 million in scholarships, obtain real world engineering skills, and will become part of an alumni network to aid them in the process of obtaining internships and careers in their future.
