Tribe Tech Robotics Team 4485 began its FIRST journey during the 2012-2013 school year. The idea of starting a team was proposed by a Danville Community High School student, David Shaw. He convinced counselor, Mike Klinker to supervise the club and bring the FIRST Robotics experience to the students of DCHS. Since its humble beginnings working out of an old photo developing classroom with little knowledge or experience with robotics, our program has developed drastically in many aspects. We now have 15 dedicated students and 4 adult mentors with diverse backgrounds.
Tribe Tech’s mission is to promote awareness, interest, understanding, and skills in the fields of engineering and technology. We seek to develop valuable life skills to enable students to be successful in life, including problem solving skills, basic engineering skills, teamwork, and other basic life skills through hands on-training, competition, and outreach activities. We accept all interested students and encourage all members to participate fully in all aspects of the team. We operate like a small business and encourage full participation of all students in every aspect of the team.
