About Us

We are a group of mentors and enthusiasts seeking to share the FIRST experience in a new and engaging way. Most of the team were former students in the FRC program years ago and have since graduated college in various fields.

More than 10 Florida FRC teams are represented by their alumni on our production team alone. Our goal is to inspire and motivate in the same ways our mentors inspired us and using the best tool they taught us: collaboration.

Our show is formatted in a sports highlight style similar to national broadcasts... but for FIRST.
