FIRST Robotics Competition
THE LEVIATHANS – FRC TEAM 8744
The Leviathans are Pablo Center’s FIRST Robotics Competition Team 8744. Started in 2021, Team 8744 has competed for several years, winning awards and leading alliances along the way. The team accepts new students each year and hopes to continue to grow in the future. The team is made up of 8-12 grade students from the Chippewa Valley area and are supported by an amazing group of mentors.
WHAT IS FIRST ROBOTICS COMPETITION?
FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) is an international program created by Dean Kamen in 1992. It is a program where teams of high school students, with the help of mentors, design and build a robot. Every season has a different theme and corresponding challenge, meaning an entirely new robot is built each year. Because each team designs its own robot, no two robot competitions will be the same.
WHAT OUR TEAM DOES
Pablo Center's FIRST Robotics Team 8744, The Leviathans, have been building robots since 2021. The team meets over the course of the season to prep, design, program, and build their robot at Pablo Center. Throughout the competition season, The Leviathans will travel to compete in scrimmages and competitions, with the hope of qualifying to compete for FIRST Championship alongside other teams from around the world.

2024 FIRST ROBOTICS COMPETITION CHALLENGE
FIRST IN SHOW
This season's FRC challenge is First In Show. Its goal is to shine a spotlight on the role STEAM plays in the arts and in empowering young people, just like The Leviathans, to design and build a world of endless possibilities. They will use their engineering skills and creative power to build a robot that can complete this season's requirements!
