Spectrum is FIRST Robotics Team #3847 from Houston, Texas. Spectrum was formed from the two rival engineering teams of St. Agnes Academy and Strake Jesuit College Preparatory in late 2010. Members of the two teams initiated the partnership, originally called the Roaring Crusaders, so they could compete in the more advanced FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC). By combining the teams we saw that we could take advantage of each of our strengths and resources. Since our formation, Spectrum has worked together to spread engineering to others, build robots, and have fun.
Before and since the formation, the two schools' engineering teams have competed against each other in the BEST Robotics Competition. We now work together as FIRST teammates.
Spectrum 3847 thrives on good communication between our team members. For that reason, we use email, Google groups, Google docs, and a private facebook group for all intra-group communication. This website serves as our face to the community: to inform, engage, and inspire with the message of FIRST and our team.
