We are thankful to bring home the State UL Safety Award again this year! Way to go team! We really appreciate all of the input from our Sponsor, Delta Global Services, for helping us perfect our Safety Plan.

2017 Gainesville and Columbus Qualifiers

On Saturday 3/18/2017, our robot was chosen on Alliance 6 in the Columbus Event to compete in the Semi-Finals. See one of our exciting matches on the blue alliance here! We were blessed to come home with the UL Safety and Imagery Awards in both the Gainesville and Columbus competitions in addition to having two Deans List finalists and Safety of the Day Awards! We are now ranked 18th in the state!  Way to go team!  Thank you to all of the volunteers, sponsors, coaches and parents for making this possible!

Thank you to these companies for inspiring us to be our best!

We finished the 2016 season at the state competition in Athens ranked 24th of 65 teams in the state of Georgia (see official rankings here). Thank you team, mentors, sponsors and volunteers for all of your hard work! Thank you Lord for a blessed 2016 season!

Winning Team

We won the Rookie All-Star Award at the FIRST Robotics Competition 2015 Peachtree Regional event in downtown Atlanta! We were so excited to also win the Industrial Safety Award at Peachtree Regional. See the awards ceremony where we are presented the Rookie All-Star Award and the Industrial Safety Award! Our robot didn’t stack totes as high as some, but we can tell you it’s true: FIRST is more than robots!

Our Rookie All-Star designation won us a spot at the 2015 international competition! This exciting event in St. Louis included over 600 FRC teams, and we got to be one of them. While there, we had loads of fun and even got a Pit Safety of the Day award, and got the award signed by FIRST founder Dean Kamen! It was an amazing event, and was a great way to end our rookie season.

Our team is powered by students from Trinity Christian School Tech Club. In 2015 and 2016, we hosted a series of summer camps. Students learned how to build and fly drones, build and program robots, write computer code and much more!

Below are a few pictures from our 2015 robot build season. There are lots more on our Flickr group page.
