About Fondy Fire Robotics

Like many other FIRST robotics teams, Fondy Fire does not represent a single school. We are a group of people, a true team, hailing from three counties in southeast Wisconsin. Student team members currently attend Lomira High School, St. Mary’s Springs Academy, Fond du Lac High School, Winnebago Lutheran Academy, Oakfield High School and Mayville High School. Several home school students are on the team as well. Some students travel a significant distance to demonstrate their commitment to science and technology. We unite for the same cause: a love of innovation, technology, and science.

“The Fondy Fire Robotic Team’s vision is to promote science and technology to high school students and to our community. Through the use of side-by-side learning from mentors from the community, students are introduced to the world of science and technology. Our team participates in FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) events. In addition to promoting Innovation and Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education, FIRST also promotes its trademark ethos of Gracious Professionalism and Coopertition. Fondy Fire emphasizes these values to its team members and to our community.”

Our team quickly realized how important it is to get younger students interested in STEM education, and started the Fondy Heat Junior Robotics Program to give elementary and middle school students the opportunity to learn about robotics. Fondy Fire has purchased several Vex Robotics kits and distributed them to local schools. In January 2011, Fondy Heat hosted their first official Vex Robotics tournament for middle school students.

Fondy Fire is also proud to be assisting in the start up a new FIRST Lego League team in Fond du Lac, as well as a new FIRST FTC team, the RoboHackerz, Team 4605.

In order to encourage further involvement in science and technology, along with Fondy Heat, we continue to provide hands-on workshops and demonstrations to organizations such as scout packs, local service clubs such as Rotary Club, school events and the Fond du Lac Children’s Museum. If you or your organization is interested in a science-related hands-on activity please contact us! We love to promote the vision that FIRST embraces!

Our robotics team, along with all of the Fondy Heat Junior Robotics teams, enjoy demonstrating our robots at events throughout Fond du Lac County as well as the greater Wisconsin region. We have participated in events throughout Wisconsin as well as in Illinois including Walleye Weekend in Fond du Lac, Oktoberfest in Appleton, Summerfest in Milwaukee, the Experimental Aircraft Association Fly-In in Oshkosh, and On The Waterfront in Rockford. We hope our demonstrations and presentations will encourage young people to become interested in science and engineering, as well as to encourage new members to join us or simply act on their interests.
