The Gunn Robotics Team from Gunn High School (Palo Alto, CA) is a robotics team that participates in the FIRST Robotics Competition as Team 192. The team is mainly student-centered, and it is the students who lead and push the team forward. Each of our members has different skills, from machining and 3D design to programming and animation. We are the only team to have won the national animation award three times, in 1997, 2006, and 2012. We have consistently been one of the strongest teams in FRC and we plan to keep it that way!
FIRST was founded in 1989 to inspire young people's interest and participation in science and technology by designing accessible, innovative programs that motivate young people to pursue education and career opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math, while building self-confidence, knowledge, and life skills."

Aerial Assist is played by two competing Alliances of three robots each on a flat 25' x 54' foot field, straddled by a truss suspended just over five feet above the floor. The objective is to score as many balls in goals as possible during a two-minute and thirty-second match. The more Alliances score their balls in their goals, and the more they work together to do it, the more points their Alliance receives..
