This is the website for Team 9960, a group of Grade 7-12 students from Northwest Missouri. We are learning the mysteries of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) through the exciting process of designing and building robots to compete with other teams in the First Tech Challenge Program.
This year’s challenge is powered by Raytheon Technologies. This season’s challenge is called Power Play. In POWERPLAYSM teams will test limits, balance energy, and maximize potential, power, and performance. You can find the video detailing this year’s challenge here: 2022-23 Challenge Reveal
This week we had our first meeting at South Nodaway High School. We have some new members on our team that are very excited for this season. Last school year we did some exhibitions of our 2021-22 robot design so we could get some people interested in our area. We now have several that are interested in robotics this year and our team is growing, especially after our loss of 2 seniors last year. We plan to meet next on September 27th to plan out what is best for our robot to do. We also plan on getting the new members set up for this season with registration.
