The mission of FRC Team 573 is to continue the work of FIRST as well as the mission of both of our schools.

Our team strives to develop leaders intellectually, spiritually, culturally, and physically in a character-building environment. We build on the strong academic curriculums of our schools and inspire each other to learn about science, technology, engineering and mathematics. We also develop business skills that will be beneficial to our team members in their future.

FIRST Robotics Competition

FIRST is an acronym: For the Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology. Inspiring teams world-wide to learn the engineering, innovation, and teamwork necessary to build a robot capable of competing, FRC, (FIRST Robotics Competition), has grown to include over 2000 teams internationally.

Our Outreach Projects

FIRST Outreach
We have started 3 FLL (FIRST Lego League) and 1 FTC (FIRST Tech Challenge) team.
Community Outreach
In the last year we have done robot demonstrations at Beaumont Children's Hospital, Maker Faire at the Henry Ford, and Sciencepalooza at St. Regis School. We volunteered for Operation Goodcheer at Pontiac Airport, Adopt-a-road, and Halloween Science at the Cranbrook Institute of Science.
Our students have visited OnStar's command center, and Acme Manufacturing's workshop to learn about real world applications of engineering and technology. They have also visited Beaumont Hospital's Surgical Learning Center, and got hands on with the simulators used to teach medical professionals.
