FRC Team Astraea 6897

Established in 2015, FRC Team Astraea 6897 was created by students for students. Aditya Mehrotra, a then-sophomore in high school saw a need to spread STEAM across our community and created an outlet for students like him to gain real-life experiences before even entering college.

 

During FRC build season our team puts in hundreds of hours to design, build and program a competition ready robot.  During the off-season, our team holds numerous community outreach events that aim to inspire the next generation of STEAM leaders.

 

Team Astraea is the anchor for our future endeavors. Our successes and failures aim to teach those around us what the STEAM industry is really like. We hope to empower the community around us and prove to be an influential voice. In the future, we hope to expand our team further, delve into bigger outreach initiatives and start lower level FTC and FLL teams that get the youth involved.
