Our mission is to develop a self-sustaining robotics program that will provide team members with the experience of conceptualizing, designing, constructing, and programming solutions to a challenge in a safe and competitive environment. We strive to uphold the FIRST values of gracious professionalism and coopertition both on and off the field. We work to inspire each other to be critical thinkers and problem solvers using science, technology, engineering, and math, all while having fun!

      The Infinite Loop Robotics Team was founded in the fall of 2007 and consists of students from Messalonskee High School. Messalonskee is a regional high school located in central Maine that serves approximately 900 students from the towns of Belgrade, China, Oakland, Sidney and Rome. Each September, the Infinite Loop Robotics Team starts recruiting students, and the team must go through a rigorous process to raise funds, both through fundraising and the generosity of our sponsors, to enter the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC). FIRST is an international organization that supports many programs to inspire young people to get involved in science, technology, engineering, and math. FRC is one of several robotics program that is supported by the FIRST organization.
      In early January, the Infinite Loop Robotics Team, along with more than 2000 teams across the world, receives a challenge. For 6 intense weeks, the team strives to create a robot that can play the game as well as possible. Once the robot is shipped, the members strategize for the competitions ahead.
