The Game

Defining their Odyssey
One Sunday night in July 1969, one billion people huddled around their radios and TV screens in awe as we walked on the moon for the first time. In that moment, the world was united in celebration of human ingenuity and inspired by the possibility that by working together, we can quite literally reach the stars.

With limited time and resources, teams of students, supported by adult mentors, build and program robots to perform challenging tasks in alliance with other teams in the FIRST® Robotics Competition.

Our Team

Team 230, the Gaelhawks, is the Shelton High School robotics team who has been actively taking part in the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) since 1998. In our twenty first year of involvement, the Gaelhawks are both an award-winning team and an active “STEM” force within the community. Students on the team are mentored by professionals in mechanical and electrical engineering, programming, and animation….

Our Kick Off

We are excited to blast off into this year’s season, Destination Deep Space! Attended by over fifty people, this season looks like it will be out of this world! After watching the live feeds from kickoff in Manchester, New Hampshire, we broke off into small groups to begin to strategize and talk about this year’s game. We talked about ideas we had for our robot, point scoring, possible autonomous modes, and general game strategy. The next day, we came back for more, and had many meetings within our committees and subcommittees, including digital marketing, awards, programming, and deconstruction of last season’s robot to learn more about how it worked.
