#TeamREV Spotlight: FRC #95 Grasshoppers

Mar 18th 2024

This week's #TeamREV Spotlight is FRC Team #95: Grasshoppers, from White River Junction, Vermont! 

Tell us a little bit about your team’s background.

The Grasshoppers have been a FIRST Robotics Competition team since 1997. Located in the Upper Valley, we have students participating from area high schools and homeschools. Our home base and primary build site is at Hartford Area Career and Technology Center (HACTC).

What are a few achievements your team is proud of this season?

  • Firstly, we are proud of our design for an 'Under The Bumper' intake - aka the "Undertaker." We think it is a really unique design that other teams are already using as a reference for their designs. 
  • Secondly, we are proud to have retained several previous students while also adding a significant number of new students to the team for this season. We are glad to have some prior knowledge and we are excited for new students to be able to learn and strive.
  • Lastly, we are proud of our ability to let students be creative when prototyping, in order to have a wide variety of concepts. We always allow for students to prototype any idea they have, and ensure they are able to take their ideas and try them out in real life.

What else would you like us to know about your team?

  • We are proud to be part of the Open Alliance!
  • We are working hard on our primary robot.
  • We are excited for the new Robotics Center in Rutland, VT.

What is your favorite part about being in the #TeamREV program?

We enjoy using REV parts, particularly for early season prototyping. We also enjoy the sense of community from reading other #TeamREV members' progress.
