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 starting 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 2015 our challenge was called Recycle Rush and yes, you guessed it, was all about Recycling. Teams had to stack crates and recycling containers in landfills.
We've been competing for fourteen years now, and we have accomplished many things in that time. This year was an amazing year for us. We won a district Chairman's Award, 3 district events, Michigan State Championship and our the Archimedes Division at worlds! In our first year, in 2003, 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. Last year, 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!
Our team open to all Bedford High School students!
