About

TigerTronics is US FIRST Robotics team 2053. From Union-Endicott and Vestal High Schools in upstate New York, TigerTronics competes each year in the FIRST Robotics Competition, a unique varsity sport of the mind which challenges high-school students from around the world to design and build robots to play a unique and ever-changing game. We would not be able to do so without theĀ support of many sponsors, mentors and volunteers, teachers, students, and alumni.

Our team is dedicated to encouraging students to get involved with math, science, engineering, and technology by giving them chances to build their skills and interests in these areas while designing, programming, and building real, working robots and competing with them with the thousands of other FIRST teams around the world. TigerTronics is also active in spreading interest in science and engineering through robotics demonstrations throughout the Triple Cites area of the Southern Tier of New York.

US FIRST is an organization that seeks to promote science, engineering and technology among young people and has been in existence for over a decade. In the spirit of FIRST, TigerTronics seeks to promote these fields to students and throughout the community.

In TigerTronics, like in all FIRST teams, mentors work alongside students. This unique approach to learning allows students to gain first-hand experience in the industry, and allows them to get expert help from professional engineers. Our team strongly believes that it should be students, not mentors, who design and build our robots, however. Although TigerTronics’ mentors take an active part in teaching students and providing feedback and assistance, our robots are designed and built by students.

TigerTronics is an exciting team, which has achieved amazing success through the dedication and hard work of its students, mentors, parents, and teachers. We are excited about the possibilities open to us, and look forward to continuing our success.F9269FRC_SiegelCenter2015

  1. In response to Drew’s CD post. Where are you staying? That will lead to restaurant list. Also, great venue. Small school. But CALU puts on a good show. Don’t get discouraged driving in. It’s very rural and you might get wonder about where you’re going. Any other questions? Let me know.

  3. Hi, I work as a software engineer in the area. Would there be any opportunities for me to volunteer with the team?

  4. Hello,

    I saw you are about to manufacture a hardware product in the near future. I suppose you will manufacture it in China or in Asia. Our company is specialized in supplier audit, factory assessment, product inspection and quality control. With our quality inspectors and factory auditors ready to go in any factories within 48 hours we are covering whole Asia and we help our client to reduce risk related to production quality.

    Our services start at only 258 USD per man-day in the Shenzhen area. A quick review of a supplier usually takes only one day and we send our client a factory audit report within 24 hours after audit. This is an efficient way to check at low cost a supplier before investing time, money and energy with them.

    Our services for product inspection are mostly used to verify manufactured goods. As most Chinese supplier asks for payment before shipping goods, it is better to check your goods before payment of the balance of your bill. It avoids discovering problem later on once goods being already shipped.

    If you would like to get more information about how we can help you to secure your import and manufacturing in China and Asia, then feel free to send me an email at m.lourdes@asiaqualitycontrol.com

    I wish you have a good day and hope to be part of your success.

    Regards

    Maria

  5. Good Morning Tigertronics! My name is Daniel Schultz, I am a former FIRST Robotics student from Ithaca High School’s Code Red Robotics team 639. I am currently a Senior studying Industrial and Systems Engineering at Binghamton University, and am working at BAE Systems in Endicott. I was wondering if it would be possible for me to come help out at all during build season as I really enjoyed my time on the team in High School and have not been in Ithaca often enough to help out this winter so I figured I could look for a more local team. Let me know if this would work out, I am free after 4:30-5:00 weekdays, and have time on the weekends as well! I look forward to hearing back, this years game looks like a good one.

    Thanks,

    Daniel Schultz
