The Rookie Bookie

Our team has updated The Rookie Bookie to include theĀ FIRSTĀ Core Values! Designed to guide rookieĀ FIRSTĀ Tech Challenge teams, the Rookie Bookie is available for everyone to download. Take a look here:

Our Mission Statement

The mission of FIRSTĀ®Team 1676, the Pascack Pi-oneers, combines the fundamental beliefs of FIRSTĀ®with the desires of our team members to pursue and promote future careers in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) and to provide STEAM education for our community. Our goal is to operate as a cohesive team, competing with Gracious Professionalism under FIRSTĀ®and developing our studentsā€™ abilities to inspire, create and develop as individuals and collectively as a team. We strive not only to build a successful robot but also to master and exhibit the many life-skills necessary to succeed beyond FIRSTĀ®Team 1676.

FIRST Robotics Competition

Combining the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. We call FIRST Robotics Competition the ultimate Sport for the Mind. High-school student participants call it ā€œthe hardest fun youā€™ll ever have.ā€

Under strict rules, limited time, and resources, teams of students are challenged to raise funds, design a team “brand,” hone teamwork skills, and build and program industrial-size robots to play a difficult field game against like-minded competitors. Itā€™s as close to real-world engineering as a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team. Each season ends with an exciting FIRST Championship.
