FIRST: For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology
The Force Team, Team 1073, is a high school FIRST Robotics Competition team from Hollis, NH. Our base of operations is at Hollis/Brookline High School where we garner students from the towns of Hollis and Brookline.
The purpose of the FIRST Robotics Team at Hollis Brookline High School is to inspire and prepare our students to become the leaders, innovators and technologically-literate citizens of tomorrow. We follow FIRST’s vision of inspiring young people to pursue opportunities in science, technology, engineering and math by providing an accessible, innovative program that builds self-confidence, knowledge, professionalism and life skills.
Our team mimics the real-world, corporate business structure with student leadership consisting of two co-CEOs and several VPs for each subgroup: Business, Electrical, Integration, Mechanical, Software, and Strategy. The team values their influence over the community and constantly works to host community events and connect with other teams at off-season competitions. This does more than build a network of sponsors and supporters, it also allows team members create stronger friendships and gain new insights from their experienced peers.
Annually, Team 1073 hosts Jr. FIRST Lego League and FIRST Lego League tournaments, with a roster that grows larger and larger with each passing season. Through these events, we can encourage young students who are interested in science and technology to continue their participation in FIRST by joining the local FTC or FRC teams. In this way, we have built strong relationships with and gained the support of our sponsors, other FRC teams, and the entire community.
