Team Storm 4107, the only FRC team in the Harrison County School District, is located in Gulfport, Mississippi. The team received their permanent FRC team number on October 20, 2011.
The team provides students of West Harrison High School, as well other schools such as Harrison Central, with experiences they can use in their college and career. It also has exposed the community of Harrison County School District to FIRST. Team Storm 4107 has a team of highly skilled mentors to support and help the students. Because of this program, students have gained interest in degrees and careers in STEM.
The team also encourages young kids to join FIRST robotics by volunteering our time to mentor VEX teams and assist in tournaments. Team Storm's community outreach efforts not only have a positive effect on the community, but it also helps its students become more interested in helping others, as well as gain experience needed for college.
