Cougars Gone Wired

It's about wires, its about power, we stay charged up, we get louder!

FIRST Robotics Competition Team 2996 Cougars Gone Wired strives to combine a constant pursuit of knowledge with a commitment to the community and the expansion of FIRST. We endeavor to be a role model for other teams by building students while building robots, having fun while working hard, and doing our best while helping others.


FIRST® inspires young people to be science and technology leaders and innovators by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.


FIRST Robotics Competition Team 2996 Cougars Gone Wired is excited to be hosting the pre-competition Scrimmage! This opportunity allows teams to test their robots on a full field prior to official competition.

MAD Summer Camp

We have hosted the Making A Difference (MAD) Robotics Summer Camp for middle school students since 2016. Through the MAD Summer Camp, we teach and inspire tomorrow's leaders with exciting hands-on experience and basic engineering practice. The camp uses an intriguing STEM-based curriculum in which campers build their own robots and learn to program so that they can play in autonomous and driver-controlled challenges!
