More Than Robots
T.W.C.A. is an award-winning FIRST Tech Challenge Team (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) in Hurricane, Utah. We are comprised of 7 team members ages 12-16 and several adult mentors.
Follow us on our journey as we design and build robots to meet specific seasonal criteria in order 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 3 seasons and look forward to meeting many new people through the new 2022-2023 Power Play season. Please enjoy this video from co-creator of the hit Disney show, Phineas and Ferb as he wishes us luck!
T.W.C.A. was invited to participate in the 2022 FIRST Championship in Houston, Texas! We would like to thank all of our fans and sponsors that helped us raise the funds we needed to make the trip. Through our experience at the FIRST Championship, we learned more than we have learned over our last 3 years combined. We are excited to begin our fourth season armed with new tools to help not only ourselves but other teams become better teammates and engineers.

Last season we performed over 1,800 hours promoting FIRST in-person and virtually, and volunteering in the Southern Utah STEM community, with an estimated reach of over 100,000 impacted. For the Power Play season, we have been busy again volunteering and teaching about STEM locally, statewide and even through some international online events.
In the News
Over the last 3 years, we have 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 Utah Tech Universities’, Atwood Innovation Plaza and newscasts on FOX13 and KUTV.
