Frazier Mountain High School Robotics

Chairman's Award 2015

Do you wanna build a robot, or some other new device……

Once upon a time in a distant land, mentor Ken Hurst dared to venture where no mentor has ever dared to go before, FRAZIER MOUNTAIN HIGH SCHOOL. There he founded Team 981 Snobotics in 2002, thus starting the Big Bang that has brought us to where we are today. For the “FIRST time in forever,” the Frazier Mountain community was introduced to an extracurricular program that gave students an inside look on technology, science, and mathematics in a fun and creative way. Though limited, our robotics team has overcome a paucity of supplies, school support, and money. There were setbacks, but we persevered and grew to be the Chairman’s team we are now.

2015 Safety Animation

Since we started, we have never submitted a safety animation for the FIRST Robotics Competition.  Freshman Ben Miseroy produced the first ever for our team.  Great job Ben!  You broke new ground.

Snobotics is the robotics team at Frazier Mountain High School. 

We exist specifically to interest students in science and technology with the intent of inspiring students to take the next step of pursuing a technical degree in college.  We exist generally to help students discover their vocational gifts, whatever they may be. And to allow students to expand their horizons and ideas from the typical classroom setting.

We hope to accomplish our goals by annually building a robot to compete in the national First Robotics Competition.  Participation in the Snobotics team presents students with the opportunity to learn and perform many tasks including, but not limited to:
