Our Mission

Robo Troopers’ mission is to enrich our experiences by learning mechanics and programming of robots, enhance our leadership and communication skills, and focus on winning robotics competitions! We proudly give back to the community by hosting STEM events and raising awareness about FIRST robotics programs.

We look forward to working together as a team, exploring new skills and ideas and use creativity and persistence to solve problems. We respect each other and believe in teamwork, as working together in a team is what makes us stronger and more successful.

“Imagination is more important than knowledge as it is imagination that takes the first step towards creativity. Never give up on what you really want to do. Failing is a very important part of learning as only then can you appreciate the real value of success.”

-Albert Einstein

“Dream big and never give up”

-Mukta Mehra

History

Our team has been running since 2018. We have gone to FTC world championships in our rookie year, a feat few rookie teams can boast of 🙂 We were also Virginia state champions that same year, as winning alliance captains.
