Tomball Memorial high school robotics Team

Who We Are

          The Tomball Memorial High School FRC robotics team, Vector 8177, is a rookie team established in 2019. We started this journey as a means to fuel our passion for STEM and spread its values to inspire other students to pursue their goals. Through this team, members learn how to become leaders in various fields, ranging from business, management, computer science, and engineering. Our goal to impact student’s lives is  dedicated to realizing FIRST’s vision: “To transform our culture by creating a world where science and technology are celebrated and where young people dream of becoming science and technology leaders.” – Dean Kamen, Founder of FIRST.

FIRST Robotics Competition

The FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) is a series of competitions that challenge thousands of high school teams, encouraging each one of them to design and build a robot capable of completing difficult tasks. These competitions inspire students to become leaders in science and technology through mentors who help us learn not only the science, engineering, and technology that is required to build a robot but also foster life skills like communication, teamwork, and leadership.
