Team Blitz #2083 is from Conifer, Colorado.
Team Blitz may be based at Conifer High School, but we welcome students from all schools – namely Evergreen High School, Platte Canyon High School, their associated middle schools, and homeschooled students.
We look forward to our 2023-2024 season with FIRST Robotics. We’ll be giving it our all for this new season!
We’d like to give a special thanks to this season’s sponsors, mentors, and families. We would not be possible without their support and enthusiasm!
While the robots are designed and built by students, guidance is provided by adult mentors. We’re always on the lookout for additional mentors. While engineering expertise is helpful (think electrical, mechanical, or programming), we also need non-engineering mentors that can contribute in non-technical ways such as marketing, organizing, fundraising, and team building, just to name a few!
Team Blitz is a student led team. Our students brainstorm, design, build, test and compete with the robots. Our student leadership is critical to the overall success of the team. From planning meetings and recruiting to fundraising and safety training, these student are the driving force behind Team Blitz! Together they develop the culture of the team and build a cohesive community!
Conifer High School is our chartering organization, but we welcome students from the surrounding foothill communities such as Evergreen, Morrison, Pine, and Bailey as well as homeschooled students. We design, build, and program robots from scratch. We love building robots and having fun! The team work, engineering, planning and time management skills we learn are an excellent bonus! Join us!
Often called the “varsity sport for the mind”, FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) was founded to inspire young people’s interest and participation in science and technology.
Under strict rules, limited time and resources, teams of students are challenged to raise funds, design a team “brand,” hone teamwork skills, and build and program industrial-size robots to play a difficult field game against like-minded competitors. It’s as close to real-world engineering as a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team.
