Team Neutrino is a robotics team made up of high school students from all around Story County that works for a seven-week build season beginning in January to design, build, and program a ~125lb robot to face each year’s challenge and compete against other teams at three-day competitions.
The team will hold a showcase on Thursday, December 5, 4:00-5:30pm at the Core Facility Commons. We are excited to meet potential investors and mentors for their team. We will also be serving cookies! Everyone is welcome to attend.
Outside of the build season, we spread the message of FIRST and inspire young kids in the Story County community to pursue a career path in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) through mentoring teams, hosting summer camps, and volunteering at various other outreach events.
The last competition of the 2019 season has come to an end! Team Neutrino attended the Cowtown Throwdown this past weekend, November 1st-2nd. After 63 qualification matches, the team had an undefeated record, and seeded at the #1 position. During alliance selection, the team captained the 1st seed alliance alongside teams 323, 1802, and 5119. Our alliance prevailed through the elimination rounds, defeating the 2nd seed alliance in the finals! We’re so proud of our drivers and thankful for our alliance members. This would not have been possible without them!

Over the past few weeks, Team Neutrino has been working on a robot to compete in FIRST’s 2019 game, DESTINATION: DEEP SPACE. The team invites you to come see it at our annual Robot Reveal event! It will be held on Sunday, February 17th, 6:00-7:00 in Sukup Atrium on ISU Campus. We hope to see you there!
This year’s game is Destination: Deep Space, a space themed event commemorating the 50 year anniversary of the moon landing! We made good use of our time on kickoff day, reading through the rules and deciding on strategies. Good luck to all teams competing this season! We’ll see you at the Iowa Regional (Mar. 20-23) and Seven Rivers (Apr. 3-6)! You can watch the game animation here and read the game manual here.
