About Us

We are Lazer Robotics, a team representing Newton Massachusetts in the FIRST TECH CHALLENGE (FTC). Our team comprises of six members: Jerry Gong, Noah Pytel, Sahil Rathod, Beatriz Almeida, Ellie Kang, and Luana Almeida. Currently, we are competing in our first First Tech Challenge(FTC) season. Over the years, we have achieved world record scores in FIRST LEGO LEAUGE (FLL), including winning the state competition with our Cargo Connect robot and going to Morocco to compete with teams from all over the world. We take great pride in mentoring and inspiring other teams, and we plan to continue doing so in the future.
