We were formed in the Summer of 2013 to better service the Columbia and Lexington areas that did not have access to FIRST programs. We consist of FLL and FRC program teams. In our team’s first year of existence we captured several major awards in both programs and we will continue to strive for even greater success in the future. We are housed at the University of South Carolina and we operate as a South Carolina 4H program thus allowing us to be open to all students regardless of educational district boundaries. Primarily our mentors also come from the University of South Carolina in the form of faculty, students, and student FIRST alumni. Our team strives for education among diversity and we make sure an equal learning and competing environment is shared by all of our student team members. You won’t find another experience like FIRST, it’s the sports team for the mind and every second you spend with us will be a moment dedicated towards a better future for our world.
