Welcome to the Apple Pi Team 2067 Website, a FIRST Robotics Team
2014 Countdown to Kickoff! – 16 days, 1 hours, 34 minutes and 30 seconds
“To transform our culture by creating a world where science and technology are celebrated and where young people dream of becoming science and technology leaders.”
Dean Kamen, Founder
“It’s like life. There’s never enough information. Never enough time. There’s always competition and you need a strategy. We’ve created a microcosm of the real engineering experience.”
Woody Flowers, FIRST National Advisor
Apple Pi is a group of high school students from Guilford and surrounding communities working to make the “connection” between the academic lessons of a high school curriculum and the world of an engineering-based business. Opportunities exist to take part in all aspects of the business – planning, financing, marketing, design and the building of a robot intended to compete against other robots in a game that changes every year. Students are presented with the real-world challenges dealing with time, budget and resource constraints.
Apple Pi is also a group of mentors from the local community who work in engineering, science, business management and many other disciplines within their respective companies. These mentors provide guidance and perspective as the students embark on their journey.
