Over the past few years, Gates Corporation has been the proud sponsor of the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC). The FRC is competition that challenges teams of high school students to create a robot in 6 weeks that can be programmed to interact with other robots to accomplish prescribed tasks against a field of competitors. This program is expected to involve over 45,000 students from over 1800 schools worldwide for the 2010 season. Gates has worked with the organization to help donate belt drive components to the teams as well as provide free engineering support and advice. Gates is truly proud of the work that these students do, and is happy to help support them in this event.
