The high desert of Western Colorado is home to FIRST Team 4944, The Hi Fives. Grand Junction, the largest city between Denver and Salt Lake with a population of 150,000 people, has a rugged and colorful landscape with dramatic seasons.

FIRST Team 4944, founded in the fall of 2012, is made up of students from around the area, including Grand Junction High School, Palisade High School, Fruita Monument High School, Central High School, Caprock Academy, Life Academy, Grand River Virtual Academy, and home schooled students.  We make our home at the Grand Junction Business Incubator Center. We are mostly student-run, including this website.

By promoting FRC,  FLL, and FTC,  The Hi Fives continue to spread the positive enthusiasm and contagious energy that started with only 8 students two and half years ago. Our membership now includes 35 students from nine high schools. We have members interested in all of the different areas that FIRST encompasses: mechanical and electrical engineering, programming, CAD design, and entrepreneurship.  It’s great to be able to merge all of those skills and interests into one common goal, and we’re excited to see what the future brings!
