Mission Statement

Team 589 maintains a supportive culture through a second family approach. Through FLL programs and outreach events, FRC 589 inspires others, and in turn, facilitates self-insights. These activities help us grow our team and grow as a team, and encourages members of the community to be involved in STEAM. Our team collaborates with our mentors to further improve our technical capabilities, building on our solid foundations with innovative design features at appropriate risk levels.

About 589

We are Falkon Robotics, FRC team 589, with an enrollment of 115 students, we have 13 mentors, and 10 college age mentors in training. Almost half of those students have volunteered to mentor in FLL, an outreach program for younger engineers who we hope will be inspired by the actions of our team. We participate in FIRST Robotics Competition and share our passion for engineering with our community.

FIRST Robotics Competition

FRC is the ultimate competition for the mind. We have 6 weeks to understand the game, design, and built a robot to accomplish several tasks. The game includes a series of complex actions that if completed provide points that will rank our team higher, and help us win the competition. In addition we raise money by seeking sponsors and providing outreach to establish the 589 name. Surpassing these obstacles help us grow as team, work on our leadership skills, and learn how the real life works.
