INSPIRE AWARD WINNING ROOKIE ROBOTICS TEAM 2019-2020
ENIGMA 16265 started out in 2019 as a rookie FIRST Tech Challenge robotics team with 9 members, ages 12-16, grades 7-11.
Running a robotics team can be very expensive as we are responsible to get all of our own power tools, hand tools, tool chests/cabinets, workbenches, electronics, computers, robot parts, competition field / game pieces for programming, uniforms, materials to build a pit, merchandise to give out at competitions, and we travel a lot for competitions. We didn’t want to just ask for money so we come up with a way to give our supports something awesome for helping us out. Remember many of these students will go on to receive scholarship opportunities due to the professional skills learned while participating in competitive robotics.
