We are a group of high school students and adult volunteers that learn, explore, and celebrate science and technology. Through the international organization FIRST, For Inspiration and Recognition in Science and Technology, we build a robot to compete each year. We experience excitement of the challenge, create life-long relationships, and have fun. But we do much more than that. Through collaboration and leadership from students and mentors, ours students develop work ethic, professionalism, and pride.

Our team encourages younger students to experience the same excitement of engineering through programs like FLL and VEX. The Waukesha VEX League Competition and League Nights are hosted by our team. Along with VEX, we also hold FLL competitions and encourage members to mentor FLL teams. In both of these venues, and in many others, we display our robot and enlighten them about FRC. Through this, we excite, inspire and celebrate engineering.

Starting the Off Season

After making it to the quarterfinals at the Wisconsin Regional and the semi-finals at the Midwest Region, CORE is focusing on future plans. This Saturday, April 16th, CORE is going to the Rockwell Automation UPAF Fundraiser which is held at Rockwell Automation’s world headquarters in Milwaukee. We are excited to demonstrate our 2016 robot at this wonderful event! On April 28th, we are heading back to Milwaukee to participate at the Rockwell Automation Take Your Child to Work Day.
This week’s meeting we started to plan out out Spring Interest Day. This is a day where we invite middle and high school students to come see what CORE is all about. We demonstrate our robot, present our subteams, and answer any questions potential rookies have. We hope to see you there!

Wisconsin Regional

This weekend CORE participated in our first competition of the season: the Wisconsin Regional. Due to excellent robot performance and driver control, CORE was ranked sixth out of over 50 teams after qualification matches. This raking qualified us to captain an alliance in the play off rounds. CORE fought valiantly in the quarterfinals together with teams 192 and 4241, and though we did not continue into the semifinals we are proud of this exemplary performance at our first competition.


In addition to our robot’s success, we are thrilled to announce that CORE was awarded the Judges Award at the Wisconsin Regional this year. This award recognizes a team that demonstrates exceptional abilities in one or many areas that may not fit perfectly into established award categories. We are very honored to have been recognized in this way.


This weekend CORE will be traveling to the Midwest regional in Chicago, Illinois. Stay tuned for further updates as we take on this next challenge; we encourage everyone to watch the livestream event here!

Bag and Tag Day!!

The last six weeks have been leading up to this night. All the subteams have completed their work with the robot and are continuing to prepare for competition. Design is updating their CAD models, Chairman’s is assiduously working on the Chairman’s Award, and robot related subteams are making final tweaks. Everyone is excited to see how far the robot has come from just a simple idea to a physical product!
