FRC Team 3786

Created in 2011, 3786 Charger Robotics is the only FRC team in the Kent School District (KSD), which encompasses 130 spoken languages, incredible socioeconomic diversity, and has nearly half of its 26,000 students on free or reduced lunch programs. The KSD diversity necessitates allocating a significant portion of funding to English Language Learner (ELL) and other programs, limiting funding available for STEM and FIRST teams. With this in mind, our mission since 2011 has been to bring accessible FIRST programs and an affordable STEM education to students in diverse communities like ours, who otherwise may not see adequate STEM education until high school or beyond.
