The Paly Robotics team is happy to have been a part of FIRST for 18 years. For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology has a term "gracious professionalism" that we believe everyone should abide by. The first regional competiton that we will be attending will be in Madera from March 7th to 9th. The second will be in San Jose from April 3rd to 5th.

Our team beliefs

Our team is focused on learning new skills, which includes leadership, teamwork, and the overall team experience. We are a completely student-run team and whatever the finished product might be, it is always a result of students work, not mentors. Not many teams can say that. Other teams might think of winning as having a trophy by the end of the competition, but our version of winning can be failure.
