Who is team 1591?

Who We Are

The Greece Gladiators is a Robotics team based in Greece, NY. We are a team composed of students from all four high schools in Greece NY. We all meet at Greece Arcadia and divide ourselves into four main teams: mechanical, marketing, programming, and electrical. Each of the teams is responsible for helping build or design a different aspect of our robot. We would be nothing without our amazing sponsors as you can see on our Sponsors page.

What We Do

FIRST Robotics pushes kids to their full potential by making them go through six grueling weeks of brainstorming a robot, building its components, and competing against other FIRST teams from all around the world. This may sound too much for a "kid," but the bright young minds of our days are very capable of accomplishing this. If you wish to learn more, go to the FIRST Robotics website.

Our Mission

The Mission of team 1591 is to give students a chance to obtain experience working with technology, as a team, to achieve a common goal. We allow students to get a look into the diverse world of technological innovation, in both physical interactions like mechanical and electrical design, as well as the digital edge with CAD design and programming, all of which work together in unison to not only create a robot, but also illustrate the importance of teamwork in the technological field.
