Who Are We?
We are Team 7530 in FIRST Robotics, in our 5th season. Our program is open to 7-12th graders. We begin our pre-season in November in preparation for the Kickoff event that’s held the first Saturday in January. On that day robotics teams from around the world tune in virtually to receive the game challenge. That’s the official first day of our build season where the hard work begins. We get less than 8 weeks to design, build and program our robot so it is ready for the competition. This year we will attend the Lake Superior Regional Competition March 1-4, 2023 at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center.
Our team believes in giving back to the community so we participate in community outreach events. We built a cannon robot that launches candy at parades and also launches t-shirts at our school sporting events. It’s a big hit! We also volunteer for the Watertown Lions Club at our town festival called Rails to Trails. We help in the Kid’s Fun Zone where kids come to play games and win prizes. We also host a free robotics event at that same festival, where we allow community members to drive and learn about robots. Promoting STEM is important to us!
