Community Outreach

Just as an update from our team's community out reach, we completed another successful calendar drive during the month of November. Here are the winners. We will be completing another one this month.

Also, on November 9th we held a Food Drive at Stop and Shop to donate to our local Community Food Pantry. Many students came to help load boxes, and hold signs. The school's principal, Mr. Mark Hollick showed his support of his school and donated to the drive as well as many other faculty that were shopping that day.

On December 14th, we did a Toys for Tots drive along with the school's JROTC program and it was very successful. We were able to get many donations both monetary and tangible, and it was fun singing Christmas carols and helping out the community.

FRC Kick-Off 2015

Hello FIRST advocates! What an exciting day it has been. Assabet Valley Regional Technical High School, home of the Aztechs 157 team hosted this year's Kick-Off festivities. 18 teams came from around Massachusetts and New England in general.
The JROTC, the high school's chartered Junior Reserve Operative Training Corps joined the team in guiding teams and members into the auditorium for the video screening. This was a wonderful joining of forces, and the Kick-off was so much fun.
The Game was finally revealed after much suspense during the annual kick-off video. We are competing in a game called Recycle Rush, working with our own alliances and there were indeed many changes to the game.
You can rewatch the Game Reveal and Game Animation here: 

All of the tides have turned in FIRST Robotics, and as always, good luck in competition.
