“Half man, Half machine, ALL TEAMWORK.”

We need your help!!! The Joliet Township High School's FIRST Robotics Team 4241, the Joliet Cyborgs, and their robot PALADIN were chosen to participate in the FIRST Robotics World Championship!!! The World Championship will be held in St. Louis, MO on April 27, 28, 29 & 30, 2016.

The Joliet Cyborgs have been competing in the FIRST Robotics Competition since 2011.  This is the first time they are going to the World Championship.  We are sure it won't be the last time!  But we need your help to get there.   

PALADIN perfomed like a pro at the Midwest Regional.  In the medieval setting of this year's game, FIRST Stronghold, PALADIN traversed the rough terrain, moat, drawbridge,  rockwall, sally port, ramparts and catapulted boulders through the tower window to assist its three-robot alliance in the capture of their opponents' castle.






Our Drive Team, Austin Bernhard, Miguel Gutierrez, Jake Blaauw (all pictured) and Diego Hernandez (not pictured) led us to victory!

We are in need of funds to get us to St. Louis so PALADIN can compete and show off his skills in this year's FIRST Stronghold World Championship!!!

Please help us make our dreams come true!  PALADIN won't disappoint you.

Thank you

The Joliet Cyborgs

Dear Supporters

The students and mentors of the Joliet Cyborgs, Team 4241, would like to thank you for the kindness and generosity you have shown to us. We were able to make our journey to the World Championship in St. Louis, MO on April 27 through April 30 because of you.

We successfully competed at the World Championship winning 6 out of 10 qualification matches with our alliance robots. Paladin, our robot, performed admirably. Under the expert guidance of our student drive team, Paladin flawlessly traversed the defensive obstacles and made 80% of its goals to capture the opponents' towers.

We ranked 32 out of a field of 75. Rumor has it we were in one of the most difficult divisions (there were 8 divisions in all). Over 600 teams from all over the world participated in this World Championship Event.

Thank you for helping us make this journey and a dream come true for the Joliet Cyborgs.
