FRC Team 5417 formed on September 1, 2014 as an extension of the newly formed robotics classes and club at Allen High School in Allen, TX. The student leadership of Eagle Robotics voted to participate in FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) as a way to advance robotics programs within Allen ISD. Initially known as A-Team Robotics, they began with 15 students, of which only one was female. This year, we have grown to a program of over 100 students, of which around 40% are female. Eagle Robotics teaches tomorrow’s STEM leaders the skills they need to design and build a robot while they prepare for the FRC competition, along with networking and professional skills. As part of our long-term plans to turn our school district into a haven for robotics, our team wasted no time in creating and mentoring additional FIRST teams at elementary and middle schools in our district. We participate in educational field trips, host speakers and local business councils, and continue to create brand awareness through outreach events.

WISE (Woman Involved in STEM Education)

Women In STEM and Engineering is a platform for Allen High School girls to connect elementary school students with the science behind everyday activities. We developed our own innovative curriculum of experiments, lesson plans, and resources that promote the message “STEM is everywhere!” Through WISE, we are working to empower other girls to be confident in their passion for STEM.

FIRST Access Unified Robotics

FIRST in Texas Access Unified Robotics is a program dedicated to opening doors to include intellectually disabled students and athletes in STEM activities and careers. Throughout a ten-week build season, partners from our team work with athletes to develop a LEGO Mindstorms robot for a club competition. Through the Unified experience, we enable athletes to build engineering and programming skills, expanding our impact to over 200 kids since 2018.

Eaglets: Robot Kits for Kids

Eaglets: Robot Kits for Kids is a camp for elementary students in grades 4 to 6. Students have the opportunity to learn programming, engineering, and robotics concepts through our custom-made Raspberry Pi robot kits. Students are introduced to robotics as early as possible while maintaining the passion and excitement for robotics that our team ignites.
