FIRST Championship – Houston 2022 Results

After 2 years of no worlds, the team finally went to the in-person FIRST World Championship. After two days and ten matches of qualifying rounds, the team finished with a 7-3 win-loss record, seeding them 17th out of the 76 teams in the Carver division. The team was selected as a 3rd pick on the 6th seed alliance with Team 59 RamTech, Team 179 Children of the Swamp, and Team 4561 TerrorBytes. After losing twice in the quarterfinals, our season came to a close.

We’d like to thank and congratulate every single member, mentor, parent, and associate for helping us complete the most successful season in Team Neutrino history!

Team Neutrino won the Championship Engineering Inspiration award at Houston. This is our very first award at Championships, and we are the first Iowa team to win the Championship Engineering Inspiration award!

Congratulations to Leslie Kim for becoming a Dean’s List Award Winner! Leslie is the first person in Team Neutrino and Iowa FRC history to win this most prestigious award.

Dean’s List Award Winners are great examples of student leaders who have led their Teams and communities to increased awareness for FIRST and its mission. These students have also achieved personal technical expertise and accomplishment. It is the intention of FIRST that these individuals will continue on, post-Award, as great leaders, student alumni, and advocates of FIRST.

We’d like to thank our mentors for this excellent and exciting season, and to our seniors that has done so much to grow and help this team, we’ll be very sad to see many of them go

A special thanks to our generous sponsors, making this trip, and this entire season possible.

Good job to all teams this season, and we can’t wait to see you for next year’s game, FIRST Charged Up.

Cowtown Throwdown 2021 Recap

Thanks to everyone who went to CTTD to cheer on Team Neutrino! We ended the competition with a top 4 finish alongside Team 1986 Titanium and Team 1802 Stealth.

After a year and a half of virtual events, Team Neutrino finally got the chance to compete in an in-person competition.

ACSD Enrich, Empower, and Excel

Team Neutrino volunteered at Ames Community School District’s Enrich, Empower, and Excel summer camp this year at Meeker Elementary school, bringing STEM enrichment to the program via pre-planned activities and crafts. In the first week students learned about the science of space, participating in activities ranging from creating marshmallow constellations to making paper rockets to launch outside. The 2nd week’s theme was Light It Up,  and students made LEDs glow with squishy Playdoh circuits and “painted” in the dark with glow sticks and a long-exposure camera. The third week was “Spy School”, as students made invisible ink with lemon juice and learned about how to escape quicksand while experimenting with Oobleck. Overall, students and Neutrinos alike had a blast over the three weeks, and we look forward to partnering with the program again in the future.
