Building Robots, Building Minds
Who Are We?
We are the student-led robotics team at Grady High School in Atlanta, Georgia. We believe that Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) are the keys to solving the big problems of today and tomorrow.
G3 Robotics was founded in 2004 with 10 students and four mentors. That year, with Turner Broadcasting as our only sponsor, we won the Rookie All-Star Award at the Peachtree Regional, and competed at the international level. Since then, we've grown to over 50 students, 12 mentors, and 16 sponsors.
Within the next several years, we hope to start a LEGO robotics team in every middle and elementary school in the Atlanta Public School System. In order to expand interest in STEM and the ideals of FIRST, we are promoting a new middle school competition based around practical applications of drones in the community. Through these efforts we hope to build the foundations for a stronger STEM community in Atlanta and Georgia as a whole.
