FIRST Robotics and G Systems: Creating the Next Generation of Innovators

Video: assisted by the driving skills of the son of a G Systems employee, Chain Reaction Robotics demonstrates their robot "climbing" an obstacle 

G Systems proudly supports the Plano Senior High School (PSHS) robotics team. Chain Reaction Robotics was founded only two short years ago, but it is clear that time is just a number for the bright group of high school juniors and seniors. The team excels in competition and continues to live up to their motto, “Blood, sweat and gears.”
