NCI FIRST Robotics Team 1262 is beginning its seventeenth year of competition. Known as the STAGS (Students Technologically Advancing for Greater Success), the team is comprised of high school students from Bassett High School, Magna Vista High School, Martinsville High School, and home school students. Students are mentored by engineers, programmers, a CAD operator, retired teachers, retired pharmacist, and a retired contractor. These mentors volunteer their time after work hours and on weekends in order to make the experience for the students as “real world” as possible.
Achievements include multiple district and regional honors and 6-time FIRST World Championship Qualifier. Go STAGS!
