On March 24, the team won the Regional Chairman’s Award at the Las Vegas Regional

The Chairman’s Award is the most prestigious award at FIRST, it honors the team that best represents a model for other teams to emulate and best embodies the purpose and goals of FIRST.

The Chairman's Award was created to keep the central focus of FIRST Robotics Competition on the ultimate goal of transforming the culture in ways that will inspire greater levels of respect and honor for science and technology, as well as encouraging more of today’s youth to become scientists, engineers, and technologists.

The team is now eligible to compete for the Chairman’s Award at the World Championships in Houston, TX this April

The team has started a Go Fund Me campaign to help fund participation in the World Championship Competition.

It’s Build Season and this is the 2018 FRC Challenge - FIRST Power Up

Meet Squishy! Our milk-crate placing, defensive blocking, six-wheeled omni-drive, carbon fiber and composite construction powerhouse!

"FIRST POWER UP finds FIRST Robotics Competition teams trapped in an 8-bit video game. Each three-team alliance has three ways to help defeat the boss: Tipping the scale or the alliance’s switch in their favor to earn points, exchanging power cubes for power ups (force, boost, and levitate) to gain a temporary advantage during the match, and climbing the scale tower to face the boss. The alliance with the highest score at the end of the match, which includes autonomous and teleoperated periods, defeats the boss and wins the game."
