The Team and F.I.R.S.T.'s Ideal

F.I.R.S.T. defines how our team approaches tasks, but not only during the daily meetings at West Islip High School. Because of the program, our members try to be professional in all of our endeavors. Our involvement in community events, our mentors' devotion and passion for the team, and our members' love for technology are what make the West Islip Robotechs a model F.I.R.S.T. team. FRC has given our members opportunities to interact with and learn new technologies in a manner that would otherwise be impossible. Without F.I.R.S.T. our team members would not have the amazing educational opportunities that we have. We appreciate F.I.R.S.T. and our community for allowing us to compete in the SBPLI Regionals, and the opportunities that the competition affords us. We feel that the best way to show this appreciation is by upholding the ideals touted by F.I.R.S.T..
