10th Anniversary

Published on September 4, 2014, by


First Team 1741 Red Alert Robotics is about to celebrate it’s 10 year anniversary! This is a giant stepping stone for our team. For this anniversary we would like to honor the original members of the 1741 team. Over the coming weeks we will be having interviews with the original team members.

Several of the students have returned as mentors to help pass on knowledge from previous years and this keeps classic team memories alive. By reconnecting these mentors and alumni we hope to commemorate 10 years of hard work and dedication to FIRST and STEAM- Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math.

This past Friday, on August the 29th, members of both our FTC teams- Panic at the Build Room and Red Alert Cyber Storm- presented at the Indiana School for the Deaf  to help start their own FTC team. There, with the guidance of member Connor and mentor Mr. Osborne, the teams presented in front of the entire school.

The past members of the teams talked about the components of an FTC  team, the benefits of FIRST, and the opportunities that joining a team could bring. Afterwards we held a question and answer session to clear up any confusion.

Through presenting to the school we hope to inspire the students and staff to achieve greatness and give their all in making a new team. In the future we will be assisting them with various aspects of their team as we help them learn and grow.


End of Summer!

Published on July 24, 2014, by

Over the weekend of July 18th and 19th, we competed at the Indiana Robotics Invitational.  Teams from Florida, Washington, New Jersey, California, Hawaii, Mexico, Canada, and more traveled to Indianapolis, Indiana to participate.  We did not make it into eliminations, but finished qualifications with 4-5 record against the top 68 teams in the world.

With school starting up, we are busy with recruiting new members.  Our team will be at the Freshmen FroYo Party, meet the teacher night, and then we will host our official call out meeting in mid-August. We are excited to greet our new members and show them the world of robotics!
