We are The Torquenados, a FIRST robotics team that has completed our 9th year of robotics. Our most notable achievements include winning the prestigious Chairman’s Award in 2016 and the FIRST Michigan State Championship in 2022. Our team has also won awards for Spirit, Entrepreneurship, Innovation, Quality, and Excellence in Engineering. We are also proud to be known throughout the district as one of the friendliest and most cooperative teams to work with.
The Trenton Torquenados were formed in 2013 and maintained a team of 30-40 participants until COVID-19 abruptly ended our 2020 season. We returned to the build room in September of 2021 with half of our former sized team, but we had even more passion and drive than before. We strive to create a welcoming and inclusive team where each member contributes their own unique talent.
As a member of Detroit and Downriver Robotics Alliance, our team participates in team building activities, social networking challenges, fundraisers, and community outreach. This helps us to increase interest in our STEM program.
