FranklinBots - TEAM HYDRA

The FranklinBots were established during the 2014-2015 FIRST® Robotics Competition season. It began with only 4 students (3 boys and 1 girl) and now have expanded to include 25 students (13 boys and 12 girls). We have been able to accomplish this growth by strongly encouraging all students in the areas of STEAM and include them on the team, allowing them to work within their strengths while also learning and engaging in new skills.

During the 2018-2019 season, the FranklinBots - TEAM HYDRA has also become involved in the #FIRSTLikeAGirl movement. Our mentor team has completed and is certified in the FIRST® Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion Training.
