Our Sponsors

We are the ThunderChickens!

“We have departments for electrical and mechanical and prototyping and PR, there’s cooperation, and the working together with the kids is just phenomenal. … These kids start off as these shy ninth and tenth graders, to being these team leaders and managing an undertaking of this magnitude.”

- Ronald Arscheene, Former mentor of the Thunder Chickens

Our Vision

Engineering New Ways to Cross The Road

We strive for cooperation and management to be put into the creation of our robots each year. Giving each student a chance to learn incredible skills is what we want to give to the people who are a part of this team.

Our Morales

Gracious Professionalism
