FRC 6897

TEAM ASTRAEA

Established in December 2015, FRC Team Astraea 6897 was created by students for students. Aditya Mehrotra and Andreana Loukidis, then-sophomores in high school saw a need to spread STEM across our community and, alongside fellow students, created an outlet for students 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 off-season, our team holds numerous community events that aim to inspire the next generation of STEM leaders.

Team Astraea is the anchor for our future endeavors. Our successes and failures aim to teach those around us what the STEM industry is really like. We hope to empower the community around us and prove to be an influential voice.
