Watch a video about our team! Welcome!

Welcome to the official website for the Avon High School FIRST robotics team 1124, the UberBots. We are an organization working to promote science and technology not only in our school but also in our community. From our humble beginnings in 2003, we have grown immensely over the past nine years gaining national recognition for our hard work and accomplishments. In addition, we are now the proud winners of four Connecticut regionals as well as winners of many community outreach awards. Finally, we have recently become a 501(c)(3) for our non-profit work promoting science education. More information about our team, its history, and its upcoming events can be found around our website. Whether you are an interested student, a concerned parent, or a respected member of the community, we want to hear from you and we thank you for taking the time to learn more about us.

What we do

A group of our students and alumni strategizing at the 2011 WPI Regional. Each January, we kickoff our season by learning a "game" for a robot to play set forth by an organization called FIRST. Then we have six weeks (known as build season) to plan, build, and program a robot for our team. After build season, we compete in the Connecticut Regional (and The WPI Regional in 2010 and the Chesapeake Regional in 2011) and the international championship in St. Louis, Missouri. Outside of this "season" between Kickoff and the Championship, we do dozens of community demos and fundraisers to build awareness about science, technology, and robotics.

How we do it

UTC Fire and Security, our main sponsorBuilding our robot as well as building our team requires mechanical, programming, engineering, business, marketing, and leadership skills, which our members learn and develop on the team thanks to experienced team members and our adult leaders and mentors. We would be nowhere without our sponsors and mentors. The knowledge and support of our mentors are what makes the program so fun and educational. Most importantly, we would like to thank UTC Fire and Security who helps more than anybody to make our team possible. For more information, please visit our Mentor and Sponsor pages.

Why we do it

FIRST, our mother organization We spend all this time building a robot as well as our team to work to spread the ideals of FIRST around our community. We work to help make true FIRST's vision: "To transform our culture by creating a world where science and technology are celebrated." In addition, we work "to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders" through exposure to science, technology, and gracious professionalism which we accomplish both within the team and outside it through our numerous community demos and fundraisers.
