While robots are amazing, it’s not about the robot. It’s about the people of FIRST and Adventist Robotics - the young people and the dedicated coaches, mentors, and volunteers that make this a special community. Their safety and well-being is most important. It is with great reluctance that we are announcing the end of the 2019-2020 robotics season.

While there will be no more tournaments this season, we will continue to explore ways for the team members to celebrate their achievements. We look forward to another great season next year! May God bless each of you.

We are a group of Adventist students, teachers, and mentors - partnered with FIRST - who recognize the importance of STEM education in Adventist schools. We recognize that students involved in our robotics programs learn much more than engineering. They learn marketing, time-management, communication skills, and creative problem solving in a fun and engaging way.
