FIRST Robotics Team Red Storm 509 sponsored by TFMoran had many successes during their 2019 season. The team says they “greatly exceeded [their] previous barriers and have progressed as a team and an organization”. Successes such as moving on to the New England District Championship Competition and competing at the FIRST World’s Championship Competition in Detroit, Michigan for the first time in ten years.
During the second district competition held at UNH, they ranked 1st out of 30+ teams in qualification rounds, becoming finalists at this event for the first time in the team’s history. Their performance at this event earned them a spot in the New England District Championship held at WPI. In this event, they performed exceptionally well and were an alliance captain. The team moved on from this tournament to a spot in the World Championship Event held in Detroit, their greatest accomplishment of the entire season.
Redstorm Robotics is involved in community outreach such as local, state and global efforts. For their local projects, they plan to host STEM-based events to demonstrate their robot to hundreds of students and introduce them to careers in STEM fields. They also hope to build 3-D printers for schools and libraries across New Hampshire which are available to the public. For their international outreach efforts, they plan to assist third world countries by providing clean drinking water, medication, bug netting and more.
We are proud to be a sponsor, and look forward to supporting your future endeavors! Great job!
