We are the ThunderChickens
Sterling Heights, Michigan
The ThunderChickens Robotics Club is a FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) team, based out of Sterling Heights, Michigan, and the Utica Community Schools (UCS) school district.
The FIRST Robotics program is often referred to as the ultimate "sport for the mind,” and the “hardest fun you will ever have.” Each year under the guidance of a volunteer technical mentor group, our students design, prototype, build, program and test a robot to compete in a game played like a sport.
Our team is focused on teaching students to be better leaders, engineers, programmers, and communicators. Many students join curious and leave confident. Helping students find and pursue their passions in STEM is one of the most important aspects of what we do.
As a team, we are also dedicated to volunteer work in our community. The team coordinates multiple volunteer events throughout the year. Over the years, the ThunderChickens students have engaged in multiple service projects, including Project Linus, Gleaners Food Bank, and Relay for Life.
