INSPIRE AWARD WINNING ROOKIE ROBOTICS TEAM
ENIGMA 16265 is a rookie FIRST Tech Challenge robotics team which currently has 9 members, ages 12-16, grades 7-11.
Starting a rookie robotics team is 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.
