Topperbotics is the FIRST Robotics team at Onalaska High School. We started in the fall 2013 and haven't looked back since! We belong to the Seven Rivers Robotics Coalition (7RRC), an organization including all area teams (West Salem, Holmen, Luther, Aquinas, La Crescent, Westby, Houston, Caledonia and adding more all the time). To learn more about FIRST Robotics, visit http://www.firstinspires.org/ .
We meet monthly in the fall, and then daily Monday through Saturday after the challenge is released on the first Saturday in January. We have six weeks to build a robot, and then "Bag and Tag" it on Stop Build day. The next step is a regional competition later in the spring. We have attended regionals in Minneapolis, LaCrosse, Duluth and Milwaukee. If we finish in the top three, we get the opportunity to advance to the World Championship in Detroit.
