Foundation

As a team, we are built on a foundation. The foundation includes teachers, parents, alumni mentors and sponsors. Without mentors, FIRST Team 1241 sponsors, Team 1241 would not have the same opportunities, thus not being able to provide opportunities for others. Mentors help in every way they can, from helping rookie teams to providing all necessary resources. All the mentors are a part of something bigger- children learning about Science, Technology, Math, and Engineering and spreading the message of FIRST. They are helping with the evolution of generations, creating the leaders of tomorrow. Sustainability is one of their top priorities, and FIRST Team 1241 thanks each and every one of their mentors.
