The Olympia Robotics Federation was founded in September 2012 by founding mentors Peter Cook and Randy Steele, and founding student Rian Chandra. This, for the first time, created a competitive team made up of all 3 Olympia high schools. The ORF drew mentors from both schools and the community, and key sponsors like NASA. The team has a Star-Trek theme as a spirit and fun approach. As of today, the ORF has 40 members and it is still growing.
