Changing a Culture

      FRC Team 4980 the "Canine Crusaders" is located in Kettle Falls, Washington, a small town about 90 minutes north of Spokane. The team was founded in 2014 and has been working to inspire students in rural North Eastern Washington.

      Team 4125 was founded in Umatilla Oregon in 2012.  They strive to inspire students in their community about STEM.  When founding the STEM Academy of Umatilla, they started 23 FIRST teams in their district, and have the highest percentage of FIRST students in a school  district of over 1,000 in the United States.


      Together, these teams want to impact the world, starting with the PNW, and working our way out.  By supporting the #ILookLikeAnEngineer campaign, these teams are joining forces to make a positive impact in the engineering community by increasing female representation.
