"IT'S NOT ENOUGH!"
Who we are, What we do, and Why we do it!
Who we are
We are Team 987 - The High Rollers from Cimarron-Memorial High School located in Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada.
Our Team started building robots in 2002 and we have been building them ever since. Our team motto is: "It's Not Enough!" and that says it all. School days, weekends, after-hours, or summer break, we never stop building, improving, or challenging ourselves in preparation for the next competitive season. When we fail, we do MORE. When we succeed, we do MORE. Why? That's simple:
"It's Not Enough!"
What we do
We build world-class robots to compete with and against more than 80,000 high school students from 3,225 teams from around the world in the FIRST® Robotics Competition!
These exciting, challenging, and STEM-centric events are made possible by the FIRST® organization ("For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology"), created by the inventor, entrepreneur, author, and speaker, Mr. Dean Kaman, with inspiration and assistance from MIT Professor Emeritus, Dr. Woodie Flowers, PhD. (Wikipedia, 2002)
Why we do it
We do it because it's FUN, challenging, and extremely cool to build world-class, fully functional robots capable of competing against other robots and teams from countries all over the world. We collaborate with team members from other counties and share our ideas about engineering, mathematics, design, and fabrication in a supportive and mentored environment called the FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC).
