Come be a part of our Robotics team! We are part of the FIRST Robotics Competition which is a global program where high school students create a robot, travel all over the United States to participate in competitions with teams from all over the world. Winnebago and Pecatonica High Schools have banded together to allow students to create their own robot from scratch to participate in these events. We are a highly community based organization who is always happy to learn from and hopefully teach our fellow community members. Whether you are a student, a parent, or an adult looking for a robot filled time, the winnovation is the organization for you.
Without participation from our community, the team will not be able to continue, support is always welcome and well appreciated. On Monday September 25, 2017 at 7:00 P.M., the team will be hosting the Fall Kickoff at the Winnebago High School’s Cafetorium. If you have any interest in mechanical, electrical, welding, Computer Aided Design, programing, scouting, marketing, and spirit, please come to this meeting!

Winnovation FIRST Robotics Team 1625 hosted the annual Pancake Breakfast and Flapjack Challenge. On Saturday Dec. 3, robotics teams from Hononegah, Oswego, Batavia, and DeKalb met at Winnebago High School to compete in the Flapjack Challenge, a minibot competition. Thanks to the wonderful support from those who attended and to the local businesses that donated, Winnovation raised lots of money for their upcoming season.
Dekalb, Batavia, and Oswego each built one bot for competition, Hononegah built three, and Winnebago built two. Each Bot competed in nine Qualification Matches, after lunch the top teams selected there alliance member. In the Elimination Matches teams needed to win two out of three matches to advance.
