Gearing up for the new season!

We are excited to get started with a new school year.

Our first event of this year will have the team helping out our community at the monthly Harvesters food distribution.

We will be taking SlothClaw2k17 to the Cow Town ThrowDown for it's last run at SteamWorks. This is a 2 day event at Lee's Summit High School October 27th and 28th.

Any FOHS student 9-12th grade is encouraged to come hang out at a meeting to see if the team is for you. We meet Tuesday's at CTC. Check the calendar for the time of the next meeting or workshop!

Cowtown Prep


In preparation of CowTown on October 27th, the build team has been hard at work, changing “the pneumatic piston on the gearbox to make sure it will not shake around in competition,” proudly exclaims Austin Wilkerson, wearing safety glasses. He loves to live by the saying, “You can only lose your eye once,” always reminding everyone that safety comes first.

Team 5801 Reaches Out to Teams 8614 and 32459

As Alex Hill, Kevin Huynh, and other members of FRC Team 5801 walked over to Osage Trail, the district’s middle school, they were feeling anxious. “I was very excited to finally reach out to our FLL team and be able to mentor them,” claimed Huynh, smiling while recapping his experiences with the other teams. “They seemed to scramble to organize themselves when we got there, so when we left and they were content I was reassured that our time spent with them was beneficial,” he added.


We, the CTC Inspire, are a FIRST Robotics Team. Fort Osage is our home district and any 9-12th grade student is elligible to join. Students attending classes at the CTC can join the team as well.  We have 26 students on our team currently. With two seasons under our belt, we are ready to see what the new game "Power Up" has to offer us.
