Gull Lake Area Robotics offers an opportunity for STEM learning and teamwork to any student in Gull Lake Community Schools. FIRST Robotics is a team sport based on robotics, programing, and real world problem solving. Teams compete as they learn how to work together and communicate effectively to solve real world problems. The FIRST Robotics Program brings a strong connection to the Core Values of Discovery, Innovation, Impact, Inclusion, and Teamwork. The motto of the program is that this is the only sport where EVERYONE can go pro!
The Gull Lake Community Schools Foundation has played a pivotal role as we have grown as a program. Over the past 3 years, we grew from 3 Middle School and 1 High School team, to now serving any student Young 5s through High School with a total of 21 teams. With this support, Gull Lake Area Robotics directly impacts over 150 students every year. We are also proud to be hosting our first-ever qualifying event containing FLL Jr, FLL, and FTC teams, one of only 3 events in the state to offer a competition displaying all these levels of FIRST under one roof. At this competition, 92 area teams will converge at our own Gull Lake High School to compete for a chance to move to the State Championship.
