We are the RoboLords (Team #11112), a team of 10 middle and high schoolers from Ashburn, VA. Our common interest in STEM and passion about robotics has inspired us to come together and form the RoboLords so that we can learn as a team. We are returning for our second year after a pretty impressive performance as rookies last year. In addition to learning robotics and participating in FTC competitions, we also organized and taken part in outreach events, such as NOVA Stem Day and the FTC Relic Recovery Kickoff. We participated at the North Central VA Qualifier and the Shenandoah Qualifier. At the Flint Hill Scrimmage, we met Team 7729, and they graciously gave us a pair of 3-inch wheels upon request. We appreciate your gracious professionalism, and we look forward to meeting you guys at the VA State Competition.
Congratulations Hawks @SouthLakesHighSchoolRobotics on your Connect Award and qualifying to the Virginia State Tournament.

"That is so cool!" Emeka Ezidinma, PTSA President
"Awesome. Go Robotics Team" Selwyn Lawrence, Information Technology Teacher
"Very much appreciate and respect your receiving the Connect Award, how you compete matters!" Michael Sanio,

Happy Pride Month! ❤️🧡💛💚💙 💜

Ensuring that all members of the FIRST community feel a sense of belonging has long been a part of our equity, diversity and inclusion mission.

We are proud to celebrate le***an, gay, bisexual, transgender, and q***r people and allies by using our platform to raise awareness and highlight LGBTQ+ voices within our community, and through our new collaboration with Project THRIVE, a multi-year, collaborative effort of national organizations led by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation.

ICYMI: Watch Changing the Game: STEM, Sports, & Advancing Equity
Last week, special guests from the sports industry joined us on FIRSTtv for a conversation about math and science, how they’re used in sports to predict outcomes and enhance the game, and the importance of representation, allyship, and equity.

Episode host Jay Flores was joined by Andre Snellings, senior writer at ESPN; Jen Welter, the first female NFL coach; Yareliz Ramirez, IT services manager for the Miami Heat; Brittany Holterman, former D1 basketball player and two-time competitor on American Ninja Warrior; and Sean Doolittle, pitcher for the Cincinnati Reds. This latest episode is posted on the FIRST YouTube Channel, where you can find our first two episodes of Beyond the BotsSM and more inspiring content.
