The Gunn Robotics Team (GRT) is a student-managed team that competes in the FIRST Robotics competition. We CAD our own designs, write our own software, and wire our own robots; we manage our sponsorships, organize and staff outreach events. Being on the Gunn Robotics Team gives every student the opportunity to make real decisions, learn from the results, and produce something amazing in the process.
All GRT students learn how to CAD and work in the shop, and develop additional expertise working in small groups focused on skills such as programming, welding, gearbox design, pneumatics, and more. We stay connected with our community, building projects for local schools and community events. We have been fortunate to work with generous sponsors, who assist us with resources and training.
Bosch, a leading home appliance and auto parts manufacturer, sponsors many FRC teams. They have graciously supported GRT for eight years both financially and through engineering mentorships. They continue to be a major team sponsor.
The KLA foundation is a nonprofit that supports the community with four areas of focus: STEM Education, Wellness, Local Community and International Community. They graciously sponsor many FRC teams, including supporting GRT for three years. KLA continues to be a valuable sponsor.
PiE is a non-profit education foundation dedicated to supporting all Palo Alto public schools. PAUSD generously provides funds for team coaches.
FIRST NorCal runs FRC competitions in Northern California and has graciously supported GRT along with many other local FRC teams.
