We, the Highlanders, began our journey as a team in 2015. A combination of students and teachers began the team in hopes to allow individuals with interests that expand past the normal high school curriculum fulfill their passions. Our first competition was Strong Hold 2015, where, as a rookie team, we did exceptionally well. We competed in two competitions; in the North Shore Event, we achieved fifth place, making us eligible to compete in the semi-finals. After great effort and determination, we won the "Highest Rookie Seed Award". Our second competition occurred at The University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth, where we won the "Rookie Inspiration Award". We are succeeding in our second year as the Highlander Robotics Team, and we are currently highly focused on our future participation in the FIRST Robotics Competition in March 2018.
