“When professionals apply their knowledge in a courteous manner and when individuals act with integrity and sensitivity, everyone benefits and society benefits from it.”
Based on our common values:
• Continuously improve our results in the FIRST® Robotics Competition,
• Strengthen our collaboration with the others European teams,
• Be a role model in France and support the new French teams,
• Continuously learn and improve based on our past experiences.
“This adventure combines the excitement of sport and the rigors of science and technology.”
The competition brings high school students new knowledge in engineering, programming, mechanics, robotics, marketing, communication, ... and allows them to confront the realities of the world that awaits them.
Teamwork is crucial to the success of the project: listening, caring, respect for others and our commitments, diplomacy, but also ability to defend a cause ... Concepts that will serve us daily in our career.
Experience is a key point in our ability to find a first job. Acquiring from high school through a prestigious competition is an asset for the future. This allows us to better understand the world of entrepreneurship with its constraints and potential.
WHY "ROBO'LYON" ?
It is the number given by the FIRST® Robotics Competition to our team. Although we are the 5553rd registered team, we are the first French team.
It is an allusion to Lyon, our city. It is also a symbol of strength and power serving as a model.
It is a name easy to understand and remember. It summarizes our mission: build robots for the FIRST® Robotics Competition, and underlines our origins.
« The FIRST French Team » underlines our pride to be the first team from France which have ever participated to the FIRST® Robotics Competition. The choice of English reflects the international dimension.
Blue, White and Red, colors of the logo, allow us to bear proudly the colors of France during the competition.
