Team 254 is a high-school robotics team from the San Francisco Bay Area. We give students opportunities to experience real-world engineering through competitive robotics and work to spread appreciation of STEM in our community.
FIRST is an international organization which uses competitive robotics as a vehicle for promoting science & technology. FIRST allows high school students to work side by side with professional mentors to learn skills ranging from engineering to marketing, animation and business.
Team 254 currently consists of students from Bellarmine College Preparatory in San Jose, CA although we have had members from other schools in the past. The team was founded by NASA Ames Research Center in fall 1998 at Broadway High School and moved to Bellarmine in fall 2000.
VEX is a mid-level robotics competition targeted toward high-school aged students. It offers the traditional challenge of a FIRST Robotics competition but with a more accessible and affordable robotics kit. The game challenge is different every year, and as such, many aspects change year-to-year.
