Welcome!

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.

31 Days Until Kickoff!

Greetings and salutations! As of today, there are only 31 days until kickoff! The year is starting to power up, and we are in full gear to get the team ready for the upcoming season. Funding-wise, we have gotten a good start. As of today, we have obtained about 36% of our fundraising goals. If you have already sponsored us this year, we thank you and welcome you to the team. If you have not yet become a sponsor, please consider it! We depend on people like you, and we’d love to have your help. If you’d like to learn more about sponsorship, please click here. Another major pre-season effort that is happening on our team is safety training. Every year, we safety train all of our members, so that we can be a well-functioning team and continue our tradition of excellence in safety. Right now, slightly more than half of the team is safety trained, and the other half is in the process. The third and perhaps largest pre-season event that we are involved in is the FLL sectional that we host every year. We’re excited for this event, and we are expecting our largest turnout ever. There will be 48 teams competing, who have qualified by being in the top 30% of teams at their regionals. If you would like to support our team and the local FLL teams, please consider attending. It will be held Sunday, December 10th, from 8:00 AM to about 6:00 PM in the fieldhouse at Waukesha West High School. We’ve gotten a lot done so far this year, and we hope to get more done in the future. Until then, have a great week and keep checking back here for more updates about the team.

Back to School (and Robotics)

Greetings and salutations. The new school year is starting, and CORE Robotics is getting back into the swing of things. In the past few weeks, we have participated in over 10 days of outreach at all of the School District of Waukesha high schools. We will be continuing our outreach with our annual interest night. It will be held this year at Waukesha South High School in Room 108 on Tuesday, September 19 at 6:30 PM. We will also be hosting VEX robotics league nights for the middle school teams in the Waukesha South cafeteria from 4:30 to 7:00 PM every Wednesday.

FRC World Championship 2

Hello! Yesterday was busy and tiring, but we got a lot done! The day started at 6:15 when we met in the lobby of our hotel to have a team meeting to start the day. From there, we walked to the arena. Our first match was at 9:42 AM, so the robot-related subteams got to work preparing the robot. We played in four matches yesterday, winning two of them. We got about 200 safety demos done, and members of our team attended many different conferences to learn how we can do different and better things next year. At the end of the day, we met for another team meeting at the hotel. We have already played in one match today, losing 371-322. You can watch the rest of our matches today here. We are proud to be here and we look forward to the rest of the competition, but in the meantime, keep checking this page, as well as our Twitter account for updates.
