2012 Finger Lakes Regional Rookie All-Star Award Winner
2014 NY Tech Valley Imagery Award and Dean's List Finalist WinnerFIRST Robotics Team 4203, better known as RoboKronos, Titans of Technology. We are the only high school STEM (Science, Engineering, Technology and Math) team in Otsego County, NY. We are guided by Cornell Cooperative Extension 4-H, the international non-profit FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), and volunteer professional mentors.
Now in our third season, we most recently competed at the inaugural FIRST Tech Valley Robotics Regional at RPI in Troy, NY in March 2014. Our team won a regional Imagery Award, for murals depicting the team's titan namesake Kronos, Greek warrior mascots, and even a Greek-themed chariot for the robot.
And team captain Chase Thomas was selected by judges as a Dean's List Finalist, sending him to the FIRST World Competition in St. Louis in April 2014. Our robot is now appearing in community and educational events. Please join us!

FIRST was founded in 1989 by inventor Dean Kamen. FIRST hosts the FIRST Robotics Competition, called "The Varsity Sport for the Mind." FRC combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. Under strict rules and time limits, teams are challenged to raise funds, design a team "brand," hone teamwork skills, and build and program robots to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors. It’s as close to "real-world engineering" as a student can get.
Through FIRST, students get to:
Learn from volunteer professional engineers,
Build and compete with a robot of their own design,
Learn and use sophisticated software and hardware,
Compete and cooperate in alliances and tournaments,
Earn a place in the World Championship,
Qualify for over $19 million in college scholarships.
