Children have a natural curiosity, creativity, and desire to explore.  In our partnership with FIRST®, we understand the power of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) to inspire their innovative spirit and boost self-esteem. Project-based, hands-on and competition oriented projects introduces students to engineering, design, coding and business concepts in an engaging, inclusive and creative learning environment at PAL, where students work collaboratively, in a team environment to solve an annual, themed robotics team challenge. Our FIRST Tech Challenge team, TEAM 7149, THE ENFORCERS, is about More Than Robots®. Our team is designed to help our members develop creative problem-solving, leadership, and communications skills. Supported by our network of mentors, engineers, experts in the field, educators, volunteers, sponsors, parents, and alumni, our team experience gives participants lasting inspiration and confidence to build a better future for themselves and their communities. FIRST® Tech Challenge encourages teams to design, build, program and engage in thrilling robotics competitions. Additionally, members are fully engaged in the business aspects of running, financing and promoting our team. Guided by adult coaches and mentors, students develop business knowledge,  STEM skills and practice engineering principles, while realizing the value of innovation and teamwork. With Gracious Professionalism®,  the ENFORCERS are ambassadors for PAL, FIRST and STEM in our community. New members are encouraged to try out for the team. The ENFORCERS are a serious team, we are 3 time New Jersey State Champions and Inspire Award winners.
