Team 27: RUSH

Team 27: RUSH from Clarkston, Michigan won the Chairman’s Award at the 2014 FIRST Championship.

Students on the team organized 300+ FIRST related community events ranging from elementary robotics to Science Day demonstrations. They presented at more than 50 events in their statewide “robotics tour”, which was intended to encourage rookie growth in the state of Michigan.

Along with the events they’ve hosted and presented at, Team 27 developed a helpful system for other FIRST teams to spread the word about their team.


Team RUSH 27 can provide you with information about how to build a “rock solid” FIRST team. The Toolkit includes help with sponsorships, community impact, build season, and more!
