The 2014-2015 Robokronos Calendar (ver 4) is available here.


Now in our third season, we most recently competed at the inaugural FIRST Tech Valley Robotics Regional at RPI in Troy, NY in March 2014. Our team won a regional Imagery Award, for murals depicting the team's titan namesake, Kronos, Greek warrior mascots, and robot chariot. And team captain Chase Thomas was named a Dean's List Finalist, sending him to the FIRST World Robotics Competition in St. Louis in April 2014 to represent our team, school, city, state and region.

Our robot is now appearing in community and educational events. Join the team and 4-H for "Discover 4-H Day" at the Farmers Museum (main barn) in Cooperstown, Sunday Sept. 28, from 1-3pm. You'll see a robot demo. Admission to the 4-H event is free.

About FIRST

FIRST was founded in 1989 by inventor Dean Kamen. FIRST hosts the FIRST Robotics Competition, called "The Varsity Sport for the Mind." FRC combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology.

Under strict rules and time limits, teams are challenged to raise funds, design a team "brand," hone teamwork skills, and build and program robots to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors. It’s as close to "real-world engineering" as a student can get.

Through FIRST, students get to:
  • Learn from volunteer professional engineers,
  • Build and compete with a robot of their own design,
  • Learn and use sophisticated software and hardware,
  • Compete and cooperate in alliances and tournaments,
  • Earn a place in the World Championship,
  • Qualify for over $19 million in college scholarships.
