Formerly TigeRobotics, we “The Midnight Cicadas”, are proud to label ourselves as a “rural” robotics team. We are based in Globe, Arizona; which has had a rich mining history since its inception. The city holds a population of approximately 7,500 and is roughly 80 miles from the nearest metro area. Our district participates in all FIRST programs: FRC (FIRST Robotics Competition), FTC (FIRST Tech Challenge), FLL (FIRST LEGO League) and FLL Jr. (FIRST LEGO League Junior). FIRST represents “For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology”. We aim to exhibit these and other FIRST principles as often as we can and in everything that we do. Our team also strives to be involved in the community by attending as many public events as possible to spread awareness about FIRST robotics.
