Humans and robots are alike in many ways. Either can be molded and shaped, taught to do tasks, and if “programmed” correctly can complete those functions autonomously. This is a founding principle of East Cobb Robotics (ECR) and FRC Team 4910, where we strive to ‘Build Good Humans’. At ECR we don’t just build robots, we develop young adults and strive to build a better and more educated world.
FRC Team 4910 from Marietta, Georgia, was formed in 2013 to fill a gap at the high school level in the FIRST Progression of Programs. In 2015, we transformed our high school sponsored team into an independent team – East Cobb Robotics, FRC Team 4910.
FTC Team 11096 was formed in 2016 to also fill a need at the middle school level.
We continue to fill the gap by accepting home-school, private school, and public school students who don’t have access to a FIRST program. Using FIRST values, our community team status fosters student ownership, defines our goals and vision, and strengthens the impact we have on our community.
