FIRST Robotics Team 3635 – The Flying Legion is an award-winning high school robotics team from Houston County, Georgia. We are a county-wide alliance welcoming students from all five high schools. Our team adviser is Mr. Will Smith, who teaches engineering, electronics, and manufacturing at the Houston County Career Academy. We have been competing since 2011, and we’re looking forward to a new challenge this season!
If you look closely at our mascot, you might discover that although it looks like a typical griffon, it’s a bit different. Our robotics mascot is a conglomerate of our high schools’ mascots. The usual griffon head and front claws for the Eagles and Warhawks, hind legs with padded feet for the Bears, a whip of a tail for the Panthers, and a pitchfork for the Demons. All are welcome here!
We’re seeking team mates from Houston County High School, Northside High School, Perry High School, Warner Robins High School, and Veterans High School. You don’t need any specific skills to join, just an interest in STEM. We also actively welcome new mentors and sponsors. If you’re curious, get in touch with us today! Or come to a meeting, and see if we’re the right fit for you.
