Through the organization of FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), students from Glencoe Robotics Team, Shockwave, work side by side with mentors to design and build a 120 pounds fully functioning robot from scratch to compete at the PNW District Event.

Located in Hillsboro Oregon, Shockwave teaches a diverse group of high school students about practices in engineering and business through the use of competitive robotics. Working with industry engineers allows the students to cultivate both hard and soft skills to prepare these students for a future in any career.

FRC is a unique varsity Sport for the Mind™ designed to help high school students discover how interesting and rewarding the lives of engineers and scientists can be, in a creative and healthy environment.

We are looking for a company that can donate CONCRETE (material or labor) so we can get the Shocklab ready for the robotics season. We estimate that we will need between 16-18 yd3 of concrete to get the workshop floor even.
