Pre-Bridgewater-Raritan

Upcoming Competition

Our second competition, Bridgewater-Raritan, will take place at Bridgewater-Raritan High School in Bridgewater, NJ (Google Maps link). The event is this weekend, March 16th and 17th. Bus space is limited so we cannot provide a ride for all members; seating is given to those who submit permission slips, so make sure to hand those in (for members, instructions on necessary forms are in Slack). More info about Bridgewater can be found here. A livestream for Saturday will be hosted at this link, and a livestream for Sunday will be hosted at this link.


Mount Olive Results

Our first competition, Mount Olive, took place this past weekend. Our team made it to semifinals! Thank you to our alliance partners, Teams 1923 and 1768. Results can be viewed here. (See our robot mid-climb in Quarterfinal 6 on the right.)

Family Sponsorships

This year, we are continuing last year's initiative providing a free T-shirt to each student. Although it costs the team more, we believe it is important to ensure that everyone will be able to attend competition representing Team 1257. Family donations make these purchases that help members of the team, such as these free T-shirts, possible. Families who donate a certain amount will be displayed on the back of next year's team shirts to show our appreciation for their contribution. If you would like to donate to help us with this initiative, please contact the team at business1257@ucvts.org. For more information about sponsorship levels, view this link.
