What is CHIPS?

FIRST Robotics Competition Team 324, Chips, is a competitive high-school robotics team that was created in 2020 as a partnership between Clear Creek Independent School District (CCISD) and the NASA Johnson Space Center (JSC). We work out of Clear Brook High School in Friendswood, TX. However, our team includes students from all of the CCISD high-schools and mentors from several area companies.

FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is an organization designed to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders and innovators. The FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) does this by engaging students from around the world in an exciting, competitive robotics league.
