About Glitch

Glitch, Team 5854, is a student-run FIRST® Robotics Competition team that meets at UNC Asheville. Our goal is to continue to provide opportunities for local high school students, regardless of their backgrounds, to explore and attain STEM skills through the FIRST® robotics program. We are committed to sharing our passion and knowledge with our Western North Carolina community.

2016 was our first year as a team, and we had an amazing season. Team Glitch participated in two district competitions, qualified to attend the North Carolina State Championship in Charlotte, won the NC State Rookie All Star Award, and went on to the FIRST® World Championship in St. Louis. Other awards included Rookie Highest Seed and Rookie Inspiration Award. What a year!

Here are some of our achievements to date:

  • In 2016 we started and are currently mentoring a FIRST® Lego League team, Team Patch, for local elementary school students.
  • We volunteer at our local Boys and Girls Club, mentoring in STEM-related activities.
  • We volunteer with Habitat for Humanity, helping to build homes.
  • We work with our local community gardens, removing invasive species.
