Our New Name
Fusion Robotics changed our name to Main Sequence Robotics in 2023 in recognition of our growth from one singular team to multiple teams over the past thirteen years. Our organization has grown and expanded to include more than 50 students in our programs.
Our founding team, Fusion 4133, will retain their original name.
We felt it was appropriate to shift our organization name to encompass all the teams we have added since 2010.
The origin of our new name comes from the field of astronomy as all our team names are related to this topic. About 90 percent of the stars in the universe, including the sun, are main sequence stars.
It is important to note that our legal name, which is registered as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, remains Fusion Robotics. We are operating under the DBA (Doing Business As) name of Main Sequence Robotics.
We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose purpose is to create and support robotics teams. These teams compete in an annual robotics tournament put on by FIRST with the goal of inspiring youth to be the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) leaders of tomorrow.
Fusion Robotics was created in 2010 to support a FIRST FTC team. The goal was to provide and environment for the students that allowed them to experience all aspects of creating a successful FTC team. As well as creating a business plan, financial documents, fundraising and outreach.
FIRST ( For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is an organization created by Dean Kamen to promote science and technology to students by creating exciting events where students create and operate robots in a unique challenge.
