FRC Team 972 was founded in 2002 at Los Gatos High School but disbanded after six seasons following the retirement of the head mentor. In autumn of 2015, the team was restarted as "Iron Claw Robotics" by a group of LGHS students who had previously been members of Pioneer High School's Team 668, the Apes of Wrath. Since then, the team has found success at the FRC regionals, qualifying for the World Championships twice, and grown from a group of 15 members to a class of 50 students at Los Gatos High—supported by alumni, mentors, and our wonderful parents and community. More than just robots, we strive to foster passion for STEM among team members and inspire the community through outreach.
