A FIRST FRC Robotics Team in Maryland
The Irrational Engineers' Mission is to inspire the next generation of students to innovatively solve tomorrow’s problems.
The Irrational Engineers' seeks to provide STEM/STEAM opportunities for all types of students, including public, private & homeschooled students.
What is "FIRST"?
FIRST ( For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) was founded in 1989 to inspire young people's interest and participation in science and technology. Based in Manchester, NH, the 501(c)(3) not-for-profit public charity designs accessible, innovative programs that motivate young people to pursue education and career opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math, while building self-confidence, knowledge, and life skills.
Our robotics team is made up of students from many different backgrounds, ethnicities, and communities. Our 2016-2017 team is comprised of 25% Female Students, 50% Minority Students, and 97% Homeschool Students.
The Irrational Engineers are actively seeking sponsors for the 2016-2017 season and upcoming seasons. We are interested in support in terms of tools, materials and money gifts to help us build our robot and help us fund our outreach endeavors and team image. We will list all of our sponsors on our website, and our major sponsors will be printed on our Team Banner and Robot!
If you are interested in helping motivated high school students in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics as well as in Business and the Arts, you may contact us and ask for an interview with our board and our lead coaches.
