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. Please enjoy the video to the right from co-creator of the hit Disney show, Phineas and Ferb as he wishes us luck this season!

Thank You To Our Sponsors!


Last season we performed over 1,000 hours promoting FIRST in-person and virtually, and volunteering in the Southern Utah STEM community, with an estimated reach of over 100,000 impacted. This season we have already matched our outreach hours from last season and show no signs of slowing down! Highlights included traveling to Salt Lake to represent FIRST at a DIY Expo and being a big part of our local community in our weekly farmer’s markets and Peach Day’s celebration.

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 DSU’s Atwood Innovation Plaza and newscasts on FOX13 and KUTV.
