THE
HIGHROLLERS

Our Mission...

Our mission is to engage students in the fields of engineering, manufacturing, and computer programming to demonstrate how mathematics and science apply to real-life situations.

Our History...

Team 987 was founded in October of 2001 by Marc Rogers and Joe Barry. The team consisted of a total of eleven students, coaches, and mentors. During our team's early years, the mentors and students were inexperienced and had little support from outside organizations. Over the years our team has learned a lot through trial and error, and in 2014 our team decided to add a new program to our robotics team called VEX. Through our community involvement and learned experience, we help other FRC and VEX teams achieve their goals not only in Las Vegas but across the nation and around the world.

Outreach...

The goal of FIRST Robotics is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders through engagment with mentor-based programs that build technology skills, and this provided encouragement to The High Rollers, making it our priority to help communities embrace the culture of STEM. Winston Churchill famously said, "We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give." We have made and will continue to make great advances in our goal to transform the lives of our students, our community, and the world.
