Here is a brief history of Team 93:
In 1997, Oscar J. Boldt Company and Appleton North High School started a FIRST robotics team – team 107, with a robot named THOR. Today, this team is known as FIRST Robotics Team 93, the NEW Apple Corps. Since then, the team has grown to include a number of local sponsors (most notably Plexus Corp. and the Appleton Area School District) and students from four Appleton high schools – North, East, West, and Tesla Engineering Charter School.
From 1997-2001, the motto of Team 93 was “Bad to the Core”. Later the motto was changed to , “Student conceived. Student achieved!” After that it was “Simplify.” Today the motto is “Simul possumus, Simul volumus.” (Which in latin means, “Together we can, Together we will.”) reflecting the teams desire to find success through cooperation.
We are based at Appleton East High School in Appleton, Wisconsin. We started off with a handful of engineers from Boldt and professors from a local university. The following year Plexus joined as our main sponsor and has been with us ever since. In the past 18 years we have had over 60 mentors volunteer from Plexus. This year we have 21 mentors from 7 different organizations assisting close to 100 students on our team. We have a great deal of experience and are very excited about this year’s challenge!
