Steel Ridge Robotics was founded in August of 2016 by our head coach, Jeff Brink. The year before he had been inspired to look into FRC when a graduating senior who had recently moved to Ridgefield had said "every high school student should be on a robotics team". This strong of a statement encouraged Mr. Brink to check out an off season event and apply for grants. On August 1st he heard back from Diamler about a large grant, and Steel Rigde was born.
In the years following our rookie year we have grown immensely, with our first year team size at 9 total members and now having 25. This growth has kept us heavily focused on ingraining FIRST's guiding principles into all of our members and securing the team's future.
We truly owe our start to our "founding sponsors".
Without their support at the beginning of our team we would have never have gotten as far as we have as a team.
