FIRST Team 3132, otherwise known as the Thunder Down Under, is the first Australian team to participate in the FIRST Robotics Competition. Our team consists of students and mentors who share a passion, ambition and commitment to inspire others about our vision of FIRST in Australia and around the world.
Our students come from 50+ highs schools in the Greater Sydney Area, Alaska and Wisconsin. They are all eager and determined to achieve our goal of inspiring Australia and the world. Our students in the Greater Sydney Area come from 100km radius around our team headquarters - Macquarie University. Our international students live up to 15,000km away.
We are passionate about spreading our message of ‘STEM for Everyone, Everywhere’. This means changing the lives of everyone, no matter who they are or where they live. From the outback of Australia to the provinces of China, we want Everyone, Everywhere to have the ability to participate in FIRST. Through our many great programs such as Mentors without Borders, FIRST Ladies and Robots in the Outback, we are making a difference across the world.
