The Agents of SA³S are a group of dedicated students that band together from different campuses of the School for Advanced Studies and the Academy for Advanced Academics to participate in F.I.R.S.T. Robotics competitions. Due to the funding that NASA has provided, the team looks forward to a great season this year.
