Team History

The team’s roots began early with FIRST in 1993 when Dean Kamen visited P&G in Cincinnati regarding sponsorship and teams. Teams were started by P&G at Walnut Hills High School and Aiken High School. Both teams competed in the 1994 and 1995 seasons. After the 1995 season, the Aiken High School team disbanded. The Walnut Hills High School team continued and had many successful seasons until the team relocated to Northwest High School. Here the team was assigned FRC Team number 144. The team enhanced partnerships and fostered many additional partners in the four years of competition at the school. The team had very successful seasons with student learning being the focus.

In 2002 the team moved yet again to Lakota East High School and was unable to keep its number and was given its new/current number, 1038. The team had many successful seasons working within the school, but still struggled to gain the much needed school support that many other teams gain. In 2011, the team lost its space within the school and was “homeless” for about 8 months until landing at the Forest Fair Village Mall. There, the team was able to expand their outreach efforts, mechanical capabilities, community recruitment, and transform from being just a team to a Program.

Regaining the support of Lakota, we relocated and downsized to the old Lakota Enrollment Center, with the hope of raising enough funds to purchase our own dedicated space so we can expand once again and further our community outreach. Having student members from multiple different schools around the region, we are working to develop new partnerships to ensure a thriving bright future for the program.
