Award Winning Robotics
Our team maintains a record of high performance at the competitive level, and we are proud of what we have accomplished. We have previously made it to the World Championships two years in a row, and won numerous awards on our way there each year.
Our team first started in 2008, and since then we have grown into a team of 11, not including our many alumni. Our coaches have coached an FLL and FTC teams and have practical engineering and programming experience. Although many of our team members are veterans, we are always learning.
The Astromechs have always been an active promoter and supporter of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), especially for kids who will become the next generation of engineers. We try to raise awareness for FIRST Robotics, and are also affiliated with the FIRST Lego League team Astromechs.
