Welcome to FIRST Team 1023, The Bedford Express - Bedford High School
Welcome to FIRST Team 1023, Bedford Express!
We are FIRST robotics team 1023, Bedford Express, and we are delightfully competing in our 14th year in the FRC program. Each year we get a new challenge and through the years there have been a variety of themes from soccer, to the moon and back. In 2016 our challenge is called FIRST Stronghold. This year it's all about the medieval times. Teams will have to overcome obstacles in the center of the field to throw boulders at the opposing alliance's tower so that they can weaken it and conquer the other teams.
We've been competing as an FRC team since 2003, and we have accomplished many things in that time. Last year was an amazing year for us. We won a district Chairman's Award, 3 district events, the Michigan State Championship and the Archimedes Division at worlds! In our first year, we won the Rookie All-Star award which honors a rookie team on outstanding work outside of just the robot competition. A noticeable award we won is the Engineering excellence. In 2011, we won our first Chairman's Award off the Inspires idea. In 2014, we won our fourth Chairman's Award and two District Competitions. These could not have been possible without the help of our mentors, coaches, graduated members, and, of course, our wonderful sponsors! We will continue to grow and succeed in competitions thanks to the help of these wonderful people.
Our team is open to all Bedford High School students!
