Welcome to the site of FRC Team 3189, The Circuit Breakers. We are a
small team consisting of students from six different high schools
around the El Dorado Union High School District.
Team applications are to be filled out by both the student and parent(s).
The requirements are simple:
1. Grade 9-12 student. Parents welcome to volenteer/mentor as well!
2. Student of a EDUHSD High School (Union Mine/Oak Ridge/Ponderosa/El Dorado/Virtual Academy/...).
3. Regular participation in the meetings and team.
For in-lab visits, additional forms are required due to COVID-19 circumstances.
Copies are available in the lab, to be filled out on-site with student/parent before admittance into the lab.
Alternatively, the forms can be printed out and brought in upon first visit to the lab at Virtual Academy. They are:
We held a Virtual Open House on October 16th, 2020, the slides for the presentation can be seen here.
On October 30th, 2020 at 7:00 PM we will have an additional Virtual open hosue where you can learn:
1. Who are the Circuit Breakers, FIRST and FRC
2. What roles/skills can be learned on the team
3. Whom can join the team
4. Information for joining the robotics team
5. Follow-up on any questions from the first Virtual Open House
“In this club, we will not only construct a functional robot, but
more importantly, craft unbreakable friendships and communication
skills. Communication, friendship, and respect are the three
essential elements to a successful team. In order to advance our
mechanical and social skills, we will work politely and therefore
maintain a positive and understanding attitude. By encouraging a
free-thinking and creative environment, we will essentially learn
more about the mechanics of robotics and create a functional robot
to compete in the FIRST competition. Since this team meshes together
various high schools within the El Dorado Union High School
District, we are able to defeat the stereotypes associated with
different schools and freely express ourselves among our fellow
teammates. Thus, friendship, cooperation, and respect are the nuts
and bolts that fasten together our robotics team.”
If you would like to support an amazing program that builds the next
generation of engineers and leaders, then this is your opportunity!
