Skunk Works Robotics is a high school 4-H team located in Seattle, Washington. While composed largely of students from Raisbeck Aviation High School, Skunk Works Robotics is an independently organized member of the Highline Robotics Alliance and welcomes students from the entire Highline Public Schools district and greater Puget Sound region. We are registered as Team 1983 with FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology). Our name, Skunk Works, is inspired by Lockheed Martin's top secret Skunk Works program, where the company designed many famous aircraft such as the SR-71 Blackbird. We have long since passed our rookie year, and strive to evolve, grow, and improve with each year.
While robotics is our passion, we, the Skunks, recognize that FIRST calls upon us to do more than just build robots. Through Skunk Works Robotics, we are active promoters of FIRST in other schools and communities. By encouraging students to pursue education and employment in STEM fields, FIRST works to preserve the country's economic strength and advance global competitiveness.
