Who Are We?

Team SPORK, which stands for Students Providing Outreach and Robotics Kinship, and is a collective group of dedicated, talented, and inspired individuals. We work together to accomplish goals and conquer challenges in our annual FRC Competition. Not only do we work hard during the FRC competition season, we are heavily involved in community outreach, our school, and assisting many FLL and Jr Engineering teams. Team SPORK is dedicated to making the community a better place. Team SPORK couldn't do any of the things that we do know without the help of our great sponsors and fantastic mentors that are very dedicated and involved with our team.

What is FIRST?

FIRST robotics is an international program that helps create inventive leaders in many fields including science, math, engineering, and business. In 1992, Dean Kamen wanted to find a way to connect to young aspiring leaders in a effective, fun, competitive, and educational way. That is why he created FIRST Robotics, For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology. Now FIRST has connected to over 250,000 students around the world and changed every single one of their lives. Dr. Woodie Flowers, the FIRST National Advisor established one of the most important values that all FIRST students live by and that's gracious professionalism. Gracious professionalism is a way of living in which one does works by encouraging high-quality work, emphasizing the value of others, and respecting individuals and the community.

On December 18, 2014 Team SPORK visited and toured 3-D Systems in Rock Hill, SC. We learned all about 3D Printing and its capabilities. Some SPORK members were scanned and we saw what they would look like if they were 3D printed. It was an amazing experience and Team SPORK is grateful to 3D Systems for showing us around.

Niagara Bottling

On October 30, 2014 Team SPORK paid a visit to Niagara Bottling, our long time sponsor. This was team SPORK's second visit to the state-of-the-art, 35,000 sqft. bottling plant in the past three years. SPORK got a first-hand look into the production of water bottles along with insight into the modern industrial world. We thank Niagara for for such an in-depth look into their work and for providing enough water to keep the team hydrated in the current season.
