Monadnock 4-H Robotics is a robotics club based in the Southeastern Monadnock Region of NH. Monadnock 4-H Robotics, through our For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST) Robotics Competition (FRC) Team 1729, Team Inconceivable!, provides robotics, engineering, design, science, computer programming and problem solving experiences for middle and high school students throughout the region.

Our team and all of our learning experiences are based on the guiding principles of 4-H, as well as the ideal of Gracious Professionalism as put forward by FIRST Gracious Professionalism, or “Coopertition” is the philosophy that teams should help each other even when they are competing. Combining the thoughtful problem solving and service oriented approach from 4-H, with the respectful competitiveness from FIRST, our students approach the world with leadership skills, strong moral character, excellent problem solving abilities, fairness in the face of our opponents, and a strong desire to compete to their greatest abilities. As mentors, we strive to help students succeed by “developing and fostering youth leadership, citizenship, and life skills.” (Monadnock 4-H Robotics By-laws, 2013).

This year our team is competing in the various Northeast FIRST District competitions that we hope will result in a placement in the NE FIRST District Championships and even the FIRST World Championships again this year. In the past, we qualified for both and were fortunate to attend both.  All of these competitions require substantial entry fees to be paid in order to compete. There are also expenses to build, repair and upgrade our new robot for this competition season.

Our team does not charge a membership fee and is entirely grant and donation funded. As such, we look to the community and region around us for support. We are asking for your support for our team. Your tax-deductible donation of any size will add to the stability of our team and our ability to deliver robotics experiences throughout the region.

Thank you in advance for your support of our team. We (mentors and students) are all excited to learn what the coming competition season will bring, and look forward to sharing our engineering challenges, successes, (sometimes even failures!) and achievements with the whole Monadnock Region!

Please keep spreading the word. We are working hard during this build season. Even on our one day off we make time to do a little outreach.

Team Inconceivable! greeted a special visitor to our booth at the NH Farm and Forest Expo in Manchester. Senator Maggie Hassan was gracious enough to pose for pictures as students demonstrated our robot technology and presented about our team.

Remember that without the continued support of our community, family and friends, we could not help area teens expand the STEM experiences and share them with others.
Welcome Senator Hassan
