We are Team MAX 1071
Team MAX is a FIRST® Robotics Competition team based in Wolcott, CT, founded in 2003. In addition to numerous local initiatives, Team MAX members have traveled across the world to spread STEM. Because of this plethora of efforts, our team has won at least one award every year since 2010, including the most prestigious FIRST Impact Award on multiple occasions.
Since our founding, we have won more than 25 awards at official events, including ten blue banners. Some notable are three Event Winner awards, six are Chairman's/FIRST Impact Awards, a Woodie Flowers Finalist Award, an Engineering Inspiration Award, and a Dean's List Finalist Award. You can find more detailed information in our business plan or at this link.
In partnership with the Wolcott Robotics Foundation, we consistently operate more than ten robotics teams for younger students in Wolcott, and assist teams outside of Wolcott as well. Additionally, we operate programs that help advance STEM in our community and around the world. For example, we work with the People Investing in People Foundation to give students in Nigeria access to STEM.
