       Welcome to the home page for Kelly Walsh's FIRST Robotics TEam. FIRST stands for “Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology”. The competition allows high school teams a six-week timeframe to solve the same problem using a standard “kit of parts” and pre-set rules and guidelines. The result is a robot that is able to complete specific tasks, is completely built and run by the students, and cannot exceed 120 pounds. Casper’s team's name is “Wyohazard”. This year's team consists of twenty students from the college, Kelly Walsh, NC, and Roosevelt. The high school students are enrolled in a BOCES class at Casper College for the Robotics class. They are supervised by certified teachers who have volunteered their time and expertise in math, physics and engineering. The adults maintain safety while the students research, design, build and operate their robot. The purpose of this "FIRST" Robotics competition was: “To create a world where science and technology are celebrated…..where young people dream of becoming science and technology heroes.”
