About The Mechanisms

The Mechanisms is a FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) team on a mission to educate and inspire students in STEM fields. We do more than just build robots: We actively build a team of future leaders and innovators who want to make a difference. Our students learn valuable life skills such as self-confidence, communication, and leadership.


Established with the help of experienced mentors from the former Georgia state champion team East Cobb Robotics, The Mechanisms is a student-led organization comprising students from eighth through twelfth grade. We are the technology workforce of the future. Our mentors are leaders in engineering, business, and computing who volunteer over one thousand hours annually to provide guidance to educate and inspire our students. Together, we strive to design, build, and program the best robots in the world year after year.
