INK & METAL
We are Team 5773 Ink and Metal, a First Tech Challenge team created in 2011 by a group of high schoolers who had a passion for robotics. We are part of the Engineering and Technology club in American High School, located in Fremont, CA.
All our members come from different backgrounds and are specialized and interested in different aspects of robotics. This diversity strengthens our team.
New members are brought in through a rigorous process, and each division of the team facilitates their own process independently of the other branches. During this process, students from different grades at our school come together on a specific day and try out for the team based on their abilities and knowledge with mechanical, engineering, programming, documenting, and leadership skills.
Our team routinely advances to FTC States and Worlds, and the 2020-2021 season has been a turning point for the vision and goals of the team.
