"Fate whispers to the warrior 'I am the storm.' The warrior whispers back 'I am the storm.'"
We are Nova’s robotics program. Our members are rookies through 5 year veterans. Each member of Tempest has their own talents to bring to the table and we are united through our dedication to the team, the game, and STEM education.
Inferno was the first team at Nova, and they became a team five years ago. Their first season was "Ring It Up" , and they learned a lot during their rookie year. However, the remaining members were absorbed into Tempest due to a lack of members.
We mentor several FLL teams, and we routinely help rookie teams organize themselves and become affiliated with all of the aspects of FIRST. We hold an annual demonstration of our team, robot, and FIRST for our school, and we also demo to our sponsors including 3M, Boston Scientific. We've appeared at the Mall and the MN State Fair.
We've reached a moderately high level of success at competition. We placed first at the MN state championship and have won the Inspire Award. The Inspire Award rewards teams who have excellent organization, robot design, outreach, and gracious professionalism.
