About Us | Members
Team #84 is a partnership of students from 5 local area high schools, corporate and other sponsors, dedicated advisors, mentors, alumni, engineers and parents. Each year the team comes together to build our robot, affectionately named Chuck, and compete in the FIRST robotics competition.
There are around 25 students on the team this year, and just about as many alumni, parents, and advisors who help. We would also not be a team today if it weren't for our wonderful sponsors who donate time, money, food/drink, and much more.

Waverly Central School District
Athens Area School District
Towanda Area School District
