WHO WE ARE

Team 2481, the Roboteers, is a world champion FIRST robotics team based out of Tremont, IL. For the past 15 years we have been grateful for the opportunity to work with the school district and community to foster a well-rounded, competitive team focused on developing students’ skills for the betterment of their future careers and the community.


TEAM MISSION

FIRST Team 2481 exists to expose students to real world scenarios which will develop their abilities to interact in a diverse group and solve problems in a sustainable team environment. Our activities teach problem identification, root cause analysis, innovative thinking, and teamwork.

WHAT IS THE FIRST ROBOTICS COMPETITION?

The Challenge: High school teams use the latest technology to build and program industrial-size robots to compete in a unique game challenge each year. Students learn distinct skillsets including programming, mechanical, electrical, public relations, marketing, and more.

The Journey: Crowds cheer as teams put their robots to the test at qualifying events, competing head-to-head in 3 vs. 3 matches for prestigious awards and a coveted spot at the FIRST Championship.

The Outcome: As students learn real-world engineering concepts, they build their confidence and workforce skills, and connect with professional team mentors and sponsors who can help them succeed.

ROBOTICS CENTER

To sustain current success, continue team growth, and provide cutting edge technology to our students, we are looking to build a new Robotics Center at Tremont High School. Doing so will alleviate the limitations of our current space as well as introduce new opportunities for growth and community involvement.

In addition, building a dedicated Robotics Center will allow for Tremont’s School District to further position itself as a leader in STEM education. Our goal is to create a robotics center that is mutually beneficial to the school, community, and our team.
