2017 Game: Steamworks!
FRC Team 1073 is excited to begin the 2017 Build Season and tackle the new challenge!
The team was busy this past fall preparing for build season, demos at Hollis Old Home Days, Hollis Apple Festival and supporting our community partner, the Hollis Womens Club at their annual Strawberry Festival in the summer and Apple Festival in the fall. Attending Off Seasons events at Mayhem in Merrimack, River Rage, and Battle of the Bay gave us an excellent opportunity to hang out and compete with our friends on other NH FRC teams! And we are still looking forward to participating in the Brookline RMMS Elementary School STEM Night on January 26, and the STEM FAIRE at the Hollis Brookline Middle School March 21.
Team 1073 has registered for our events in 2017. March 3-5th, we will be attending the Granite State Event held in Windham, NH. And for our second event, we have registered for the Southern NH District Event held in Bedford, NH. We look forward to this brand new district event where our team will have the chance to meet with other local teams and begin forming new alliances.
Most importanty, we would like to thank our sponsors and our community partners for all of their support and well wishes as we enter our Build Season! We are ready to Rumble!
The Force Team, FIRST Team #1073, is a high school FIRST Robotics Competition team from Hollis, NH. Our base of operations is at Hollis/Brookline High School where we garner students from the towns of Hollis and Brookline.
Our team mimics the real-world, corporate business structure with student leadership consisting of two co-CEOs and several VPs for each subgroup: Business, Electrical, Integration, Mechanical, Software, and Strategy. The team values their influence over the community and constantly works to host community events and connect with other teams at off-season competitions. This does more than build a network of sponsors and supporters, it also allows team members create stronger friendships and gain new insights from their experienced peers.
Annually, Team 1073 hosts Jr. FIRST Lego League and FIRST Lego League tournaments annually, with a roster that grows larger and larger with each passing season. Through these events, we can encourage young students who are interested in science and technology to continue their participation in FIRST by joining FTC or FRC teams. In this way, we have built strong relationships with and gained the support of sponsors, other FRC teams, and the entire community.
