FRC Team 766 is a high school robotics team based out of Menlo-Atherton High School in Atherton, California. Team 766 provides a cost-free opportunity for students in our community to explore interests in mechanical engineering, computer programming, product design, and project management. Each year, the team participates in the international FIRST Robotics Competition, in which teams from across the world race to build a fully functional 120 pound robot in 6 weeks to meet a new challenge. Along the way, students develop out-of-the classroom experience in everything from machining to marketing, and forge new friendships based on intellectual curiosity, teamwork, and camaraderie. Although the goal in competition season is building a world-class robot from scratch under a significant time crunch, the ambitions of the M-A Robotics team go far beyond excellence on the playing field. Team 766 strives to be a pioneer in promoting diversity in STEM by creating an atmosphere where anyone can contribute -- and learn -- in whatever discipline they choose. M-A Robotics is proud to have a 50-50 gender balance in an otherwise male-dominated activity. A robust network of mentors provides the positive environment necessary for the 30 extraordinary young men and women on the team to develop the necessary skills to become leaders in the Bay Area and beyond.
