FIRST Tech Challenge (https://firstinspires.org) is a highly competitive series of robotics tournaments for high school students. Teams design, code, and build a robot to compete against other teams, both locally and worldwide, over the course of a year. Students learn to think like engineers, gain a deeper understanding of STEM concepts, and obtain many skills that will prove useful in the professional world.

Our team was founded in 2016 at St. Michael’s Catholic Academy in Austin, Texas. We have excelled in performance, and our hard work has led us to be one of the top teams in the world.

Some of our accomplishments are as follows:

  • FTC Austin Championship, 2021, 1st place Collins Aerospace Innovate Award
  • FTC Central Texas Regional Championship, 2021, Semifinalist
  • FTC Texas State Championship, 2021, Quarter Finalist
  • FTC Austin Championship, 2022, Winning Alliance Captain

  • Maryland Tech Invitational, 2022, Champion
  • FTC Texas State Championship, 2024, Winner
  • TAPPS Champion, 2024, Winner, 1st Alliance Captain

Our team has reached many milestones through dedication, devotion, and passion. With each new season, we hope to educate and inspire others through outreach and the power of community. As a non-profit robotics team, we rely heavily upon donations and sponsors. We hope you consider partnering with us as we gear up for this new season.
