We are the Shawnee Mission East High School robotics team, as a part of First Robotics.
The ideologies of FIRST are based around ideas which the organization itself coined terms for; Gracious Professionalism and Coopertition. Gracious Professionalism introduces the idea that fierce competitiveness and mutual gain can and should coincide with each other, and one should always keep in mind respect for individuals and the community. Coopertition is the idea of displaying immense respect in the face of competition and promotes the idea of learning from teammates, mentors, and even your opponents.Go to the First website
