Get to know some of our Red Nation Robotics Mentors and NEMO's. We have a great team. There are many projects and tasks that a FIRST ® Robotics team must accomplish. To meet deadlines and goals, Red Nation Robotics Team #4576, is divided into sub-teams: Business; Outreach; Robot Build (Drive-train, Chassis and Manipulator); Computer-Aided Design (CAD); Control Systems & Programming; and Marketing & Media. These sub-teams are further organized into project teams to take on tasks ranging from presentations to corporate sponsors, fundraising, mentoring FIRST ® LEGO League and FIRST Tech Challenge teams, and advocating for government support of STEM funding.

Mentors play a vital role in the success of our team. Mentors work extensively with team members throughout the year. Their expertise is the catalyst for the team’s and students’ success. Mentors are the major distinction between the FRC program and other robotic competitions as they are wholly the professional role model for the student. Mentors engage and inspire students in ways far beyond science and technology. They enable both students and adults to appreciate the value of sportsmanship, teamwork, and Gracious Professionalism®.
