Thank you to all our amazing members

Without them, the club wouldn’t be as successful as it is today.

Since the club was founded in 2010, we’ve had some amazing members and officers that have taken the organization and transformed it from a scrappy team of engineers into a melting pot of ideas, cultures, and viewpoints working together to achieve a singular goal: to build the best robots that we possibly can. And now, as we announce that we have transformed once again, this time from a club on campus to an academy, all of us here at Irvington Robotics would like to thank everyone who is part of or has ever been an active member of our group.

Our 2018–2019 Season Members

These people will be some of the most qualified and talented people to be part of our academy ever. We are still processing applications, but just keep in mind that the trend of increasing passion continues in the teams for the upcoming season. :)

This was the first year we competed in the VEX Robotics Competition, having come from a long FTC legacy, but our dynamic team members quickly bridged the gap, making alliances and forming strategies during robotics events.

Legacy/Founding Members

And for those of you who competed when FTC was a thing within the club, we just want you to know that you are remembered and that the club would not exist without the hard work of you all.
