Lancers Win the Think Award at the World Championship

From April 27th to 30th, our team competed in the FIRST World Championship, in St. Louis, Missouri. We were honored to win the World Championship Think Award for the second consecutive year. The Think Award is second highest award, given to the team with the best documentation in the form of an engineering notebook. We had a lot of fun at the Championship, expanding our worldwide network of friends in FIRST.

FTC is designed for students in grades 7-12 to compete head to head, using a sports model. Teams are responsible for designing, building, and programming their robots to compete in an alliance format against other teams.

FTC #3415

Every year, team 3415 Livingston Lancer Robotics competes in the anually-changing FTC game. For many years, we have honed in on our skills; we design, build, and program a robot to fulfill the tasks put forth by the FIRST Tech Challenge!


This year's game challenge is themed as a rescue mission to save mountain climbers. There are two mountains in opposite corners of the field, which are steep ramps each divided into two sections. Robots must climb the mountains by driving over bars placed 1 inch off the surface of the mountain. On the way up the mountain, robots can score debris from the floor into crates for points. Robots can also push over triggers to "save" mountain climbers.

Our Leaders


Who are we?

We are high school students developing robots and spreading STEM in our community

On the Livingston Lancers robotics team, all team members can participate in building and programming the robot, along with participating in competitions. This is a very competitive club in which only the most determinable thrive.

Who are the Lancers? The Lancers are a FIRST Team, proudly hailing from Livingston, New Jersey. We have competed in FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) since the '07-'08 season. Gracious professionalism and teamwork are core values of FTC and our team. We also value individual growth; rather than just building a robot, we also build people.
