Who are we?
Mercury 1089 is the FIRST Robotics Team of Hightstown High School. It functions as a small business, requiring dedication to a year-long work schedule which at times may seem hectic. Advised by Mr. Chris Gregory and Mrs. Julie Kudish, students work together to design and build a fully functional robot in six short weeks. Upon completion, the robot will be entered into the FIRST Robotics Competition to test its abilities in this year's game. A vital aspect of this program is gracious professionalism. Whether it be within the heat of competition or within everyday life, we always treat others with the respect we wish to receive.
What is FIRST?
FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is an exciting international robotics program designed to inspire students and encourage them to pursue careers in science, engineering and technology.
