Welcome to Team 5801
Spearheaded by an enthusiastic assistant superintendent, a willing director, and two teachers that didn’t know any better, the CTC Inspire Robotics team was founded in the Spring of 2015. With help from other local teams and FIRST regional mentors, the team registered in the system as rookies with the Fort Osage School District as our home school. The team is housed and run at the The Career and Technology Center at Fort Osage, the CTC receives students from 5 high schools for 14 different programs. These schools include Fort Osage High School, Blue Springs High School, Blue Springs South High School, Grain Valley High School, and Oak Grove High School. The robotics team is open to any student that attends the CTC (11 & 12th) or Fort Osage High School (9-12th).
What is First robotics?
FIRST® Robotics Competition combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. Teams of students are challenged to design a team “brand,” hone teamwork skills, and build and program a robot to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors. It’s as close to “real world” engineering as a student can get. Professional mentors volunteer their time and talents to guide each team.
Develop design, project management, programming, teamwork, strategic thinking, and Coopertition® skills.
Work alongside professional engineers.
Build and compete with a robot of their own design.
Learn and use sophisticated hardware and software.
Access exclusive scholarships from hundreds of colleges/universities
