More Info

Lord of the Bricks FIRST Tech Challenge Team 7039, an award-winning robotics team, has made it to East Super-Regional Championships!!  Championships will be held on March 17-20, 2017 at the University of Scranton in Scranton, PA.  Please help us get there!

THE STORY:

FIRST: FIRST is a non-profit organization that inspires children ages 6-18 to develop an interest in STEM via a hands-on robotics engineering program. During the program, team members are required to build and program a robot, with guidance from coaches and mentors, using their own ingenuity. FIRST Tech Challenge:FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) is a high school-level FIRST program that allows teens to compete in a two-on-two team sports-styled competition. Teams are given a challenge annually which is released world-wide on the same day. They must design, build and program a robot which accomplishes the challenge tasks, and produce an engineering notebook, while participating in community outreach, fundraising, and business planning.

TEAM: Lord of the Bricks is a group of robotics teams based in the Richmond, Virginia area supported by Homeschool Resources Group, a non-profit organization. Our FTC Team competes against teams in a sports model-styled competition in science, engineering, and robotics by designing, building, and programming award winning robots.

Our 2016-2017 team is comprised mostly of rookies. This year’s team is comprised of all homeschoolers. We emphasize having fun while we learn. This year we have five students, and three mentors.

Lord of the Bricks secured a spot at the Virginia State Championships with a 2nd place nomination for the Inspire Award!  In addition, the team also took home the THINK AWARD, and placed with 3rd place PTC AWARD. They entered semi-finals in 6th place (out of 24 teams) , and competed alongside the 4th-seed alliance captains. 

Team 7039 further went on to rank #1 in the Kamen division at Virginia State Championships, prompting an invitation to the East Super Regional Championships in Scranton, PA March 17-20 to compete against 71 other fabulous teams from 13 States and DC for a chance to go to World Championships. The team performed admirably, ending the day having won all five qualifying matches. 

We are a community team who receives no school funding, and we really want to go!  Please help us meet our goals!
