FIRST stands for For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology. Accomplished inventor Dean Kamen founded FIRST® in 1989 to inspire appreciation of science and technology in young people. FIRST® inspires people young and old to learn through robotics.
FRC, the league that Titanium Robotics competes in, is the High School level robotics league and stands for FIRST Robotics Competition
Our team is located in San Marino, California and is a part of San Marino High School. We work with teachers and students along with professionals around the area to provide a high quality STEM (and FIRST ®) experience.
Titanium Robotics is an FRC team with roughly 50 members, mostly from San Marino High School in San Marino, CA, although some members are from surrounding schools and areas such as South Pasadena and Arcadia.
Team 1160 provides a place in the normal school environment for students to learn how to apply their skills in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. We're a group of students and mentors whose main goal is to provide the world with the next generation of STEM leaders.More about Our Team
Many years ago, Team 1160 was renamed "Firebird Robotics" (we had originally been named Titanium) which is where the firebird logo comes from. The colors were also red and gold.
In 2012, we felt that we needed to reconnect with our school, whose colors are blue and white and mascot is the Titan, making a drastic change by going into the season as Titanium Robotics. We maintained the logo so that teams that have had long-standing relationships with our team would be able to recognize our team as the same.
