We build robots. We build the community.

Established in 2006 at Norview High School, The Aviators participates in the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC). This competition strives to challenge high school students with limited time and resources to design, build, and program an industrial-sized robot to play a difficult field game with like-minded competitors from over 9,000 teams all over the globe. The competition also focuses on inspiring greater levels of respect and honor for STEM, as well as encouraging more of today’s youth to become scientists, engineers, and technologists.

Our Mission

Build new connections within our team, school, and community.

We are committed to increasing the number of partners compared to what we have now. While we have relationships solely for mentoring, financial, or STEM awareness reasons, we strive to go above and beyond to have a beneficially mutual relationship between our partners. As well as building connections, we seek to improve our existing infrastructure in order to increase our capabilities as a team.

Fly to new heights.

With our new members and our existing team, we aim to continue to challenge ourselves and others to grow as better problem solvers to think critically about the team, school, and community. Additionally, we will go above and beyond by seeking to enhance our skills to earn better rankings and awards.

Dream for a future involving STEM.

Following our goals of building new connections and critically challenging ourselves, we will increase our efforts to follow the objective of FIRST: to inspire the next generations towards a focus around STEM.

Our Current Robot


Built for Rapid React, our 2021 robot, Karl "J" Meister, features a ramp design that is able to shoot cargo in both high and low hubs. A dedicated pneumatic system is able to climb to the middle rung. This robot earned our team district finalist.
