More Than Robots

T.W.C.A. is a National award winning FIRST Tech Challenge Team (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) in Hurricane, Utah. We are comprised of 9 team members ages 13-18 and 3 adult mentors. Follow our journey as we strive to achieve our goals of becoming better friends, mentors, engineers and ambassadors of FIRST and STEM in our community. We are thankful for the friendships we made during our last 2 seasons and look forward to meeting many new people through the new 2021-2022 Freight Frenzy season.

Last season we performed over 670 hours of volunteering and service in the Southern Utah STEM Community (& beyond) with an estimated reach of over 100,000 impacted. Highlights included meeting the Governor of Utah and teaching him to drive our robot, volunteering at LEGO League competitions, sending game supplies to a team in South Africa and mentoring several local FIRST LEGO League and FIRST Tech Challenge teams.

Awards & Recognition

Over the Skystone season, we found ourselves in multiple print articles and publications including the Salt Lake Tribune, Deseret News and St. George News. We were also featured in a promotional video for the grand opening of DSU’s Atwood Innovation Plaza and news casts on FOX13 and KUTV.
