2016 RAGE Robotics
RAGE was founded in 1994 in the Hartford and Tolland Counties in Connecticut and recently celebrated their 20th anniversary. Based in Tolland, Connecticut, RAGE has 30 high school students from Tolland, Vernon, Ellington, and East Hartford. To learn more about the RAGE program please visit their website.
RAGE is part of a larger organization called FIRST(For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology). Founded by inventor Dean Kamen, the mission of FIRST is to inspire young people to be leaders in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics skills, while also building self-esteem, life skills and community awareness. In addition they host the FIRST Robotics Competition that places high school students side-by-side with industry professionals to work toward a common goal. To learn more about FIRST click here.
Over the next six weeks we will be following RAGE’s weekly progress towards the FIRST Robotics Competition.
