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! If you are a student interested in coming to this event, please your parent or guardian. If you have any questions please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
