Welcome to the AHERT (Albuquerque Homeschool Engineering and Robotics) Ravens website!
We are a FIRST Robotics FTC Team from Albuquerque New Mexico.
FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is a robotics program that was founded by inventor Dean Kamen in 1989, to inspire a younger generation to become leaders in the fields of (STEM) science, technology, engineering and math. The program features four hardcore programs, which vary from elementary school to high school:
Junior FIRST Lego League (Jr. FLL) grades K-3
FIRST Lego League (FLL) grades 4-8
FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) grades 7-12
FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) grades 9-12
