Team SCREAM- FIRST® Robotics Team 4522
Team SCREAM (Smith-Cotton Robotics, Engineering, and Mathematics) is a competitive robotics team from Smith-Cotton High School in Sedalia, MO. As a robotics team, we strive to teach the fundamentals and importance of teamwork while also providing the resources and opportunities to gain skills and appreciation in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The team was started in the fall of 2011 by coach and engineering teacher, Michael Wright. Over the past six years, we have experienced a lot of success and have seen tremendous growth.
What started with only a handful of students has grown into an exciting program that is inspiring students to pursue careers in field of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). We accomplish this by giving students a valuable experience working alongside mentors from local industries, gaining leadership and management skills, and developing them both as students and as members of their community.
Students on Team SCREAM work together to design and build robots to compete in the FIRST® Robotics competition (FRC). FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is one of the largest and most challenging robotics competition in the world. During our 2013 rookie season, we were awarded the Rookie All-Star award at the Greater Kansas City Regional which qualified us for the FIRST® World Championships. From then on we have spiraled upward with what is our highest quality, not only in competitions, but in innovation and character.
It’s our goal to continue growing, competing, and inspiring the youth of Sedalia. It’s our hope that Sedalia can be a community of innovation and inspiration for our youth.
