Team 3003 is a robotics team from Canandaigua, NY, comprised of over 25 high school students. We participate in FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), a worldwide robotics competition with thousands of teams and thousands of students from all over the world. This competition strives to inspire young people to be leaders in the technological and scientific world. Our robotics program encourages innovation and fosters well-rounded life skills, including self-confidence, communication, and leadership. As a non-profit school club running a high-budget program, we rely on sponsor donations, in-kind and cash, to continue our work.
We Create Opportunities For Students To
“A Sport for the Mind”
The FIRST Robotics Competition combines the excitement of sports with the rigors of science and technology. Nearly 4,000 high school robotics teams worldwide compete in a themed robotics competition with game missions, rules, and a 1,500 sq. ft. game field layout released in early January each year. Over six weeks, students design, manufacture, assemble, program, and test a 120 lb. robot to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors. It is as close to “real world” engineering as a high school student can get. Teams compete in regional competitions and the World Championships in Houston, TX. Since the establishment of Team 3003 in 2008, we have won many awards and been to the Word Championships twice.
Want to Help?
Donate to our Team
This investment will go beyond just the members of our team. Our responsibility is to inspire team members and enrich the community with an appreciation for and an understanding of STEM. Our team members volunteer to mentor the Middle School LEGO robotics team and various STEM events within the district. They demonstrate our robots for local companies and at public festivals and parades. Your business can be part of this revolution in science education and help FIRST achieve its vision of a world where STEM is valued.
Become a Mentor
We have mentors from all different backgrounds who help us with the design and build of the robot, the playing field, electrical wiring, programming, and graphic design/fundraising. We could use your help! Join us and shape the lives of our future leaders!
