Program Overview

The RoboJackets' JumpStart program's goal is to ensure the developement of sustainable FIRST Robotics Competition teams in the Metro-Atlanta area. By providing technical and financial resources for inexperienced teams, along with requirements and guidelines, we hope to establish sustainable FIRST programs that will provide effective and engaging learning environments for students interested in math, science, and technology.

The main focus of the program is to provide teams with the guidance and assistance needed to make sure that they stay on track and gain valuable design and building experience.
