Team 342’s mission is to provide a real-world environment where with a strong work ethic and effort, students will develop important skills that will help them later in life. Students get experience with real-world application of science, engineering technology, and business while fostering the character traits of leadership, sportsmanship, dedication, and commit to excellence.
Since its inception in 1999, with increasing support from our community, Team 342 has continually improved and has become efficient in building a world-class robot within a limited time frame. As a member of the FIRST Robotics Competition, Team 342 works within a six week period to create a robot weighing roughly 120 pounds and programmed in Java to compete with over 60 teams at competitions around the South. Over the past 20 years, we have attended the World Championships ten times, winning awards in categories ranging from robot design to marketing.
