Mission

Gone Fishin’s mission is to give students opportunities. We work to ensure that our members are given the chance to try everything, whether it is designing the robot, programming codes, or reaching out to the community. We motivate members to find their own niche on the team, allowing their passion for FIRST to foster in their own, unique ways. We encourage students of different backgrounds and levels of expertise to work together, and we push students to become community leaders. Our members are not only the future engineers and mathematicians, they are also future leaders.

About St. Mark’s School

St. Mark’s is situated on 250 acres in historic Southborough, MA — a setting that provides the rural comfort, beauty, and safety of a small New England town as well as quick and convenient access to the many social and cultural opportunities in nearby Boston, Providence, and Worcester.

The driving force behind St. Mark’s continued success is its outstanding faculty, a diverse group of skilled and committed men and women who appropriately challenge and support students. On the one hand, our teachers hold students to high standards both inside and outside the classroom. At the same time, these talented educators use the best creative and sensitive strategies to help students reach those high standards. We are blessed as well with an outstanding group of students, committed to learning, eager to engage others, possessing a broad range of talents, and drawn from around the country and around the world. Supporting both faculty and students is a talented caring staff.

  • Hello!
    We at Team 811 are trying to get a crowd scouting group of as many teams as possible at the Week 1 Nashua event! We were wondering if you would be interested and/ or could provide us with your preferred email. Thank you and good luck this season!
