Hastings Heroes Team 6508

We are the Hastings Heroes Robotics Team 6508 and have earned a place in the World Championships for the second year in a row, which is wonderful news.
While this is VERY EXCITING for our team - it also brings up the subject of money!   Although we have boundless enthusiasm and incredible student talent, we have limited resources to meet our goal of competing at the world championships.

The FIRST Robotics World Championship is a team-based robotics competition that brings together students from around the world to celebrating science and technology.
