Over the build season, students and mentors build relationships that enable both parties to learn from one another. Most of our mentors return because of this rewarding relationship.
FIRST is not just about building robots. We also need mentors to guide us through the business plan, programming and media and marketing aspects of the team.
Based on a foundation of volunteers and mentors, you can’t have a successful FIRST team without mentors. With their help, our FIRST robotics team has the potential to reach new heights.

Without the dedication and commitment of all of our mentors and sponsors, SWAT 771 would not be where we are today.
