Who are We?

Operation P.E.A.C.C.E. (Practicing Engineering and Cooperative Competitive Excellence) Robotics was established in 2010 to excite students to pursue STEAM through competitive robotics in Bristol, Connecticut. We are a 4-H community team meaning we can accept students from any school or home-school. Furthermore, we allow anyone regardless of background and skill level to join our team so they can learn the necessary skills to become the next generation of innovators.

What is 4-H

4‑H is America’s largest youth development organization—empowering nearly six million young people with the skills to lead for a lifetime. 4‑H is delivered by Cooperative Extension—a community of more than 100 public universities across the nation that provides experiences where young people learn by doing. For more than 100 years, 4‑H has welcomed young people of all beliefs and backgrounds, giving kids a voice to express who they are and how they make their lives and communities better. Through life-changing 4‑H programs, nearly six million kids and teens have taken on critical societal issues, such as addressing community health inequities, engaging in civil discourse and advocating for equity and inclusion for all.

What is FIRST

FIRST (For the Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is an organization created to inspire kids to get involved in STEM. There are several different programs in FIRST, each catering to a different age group; FIRST Lego League Jr. (K-grade 4), FIRST Lego League (4-8), FIRST Tech Challenge (7-12), and FIRST Robotics Competition (9-12). Our team is part of the FIRST Robotics Competition (or FRC).

Latest Robot: C#

C# is a small, compact swerve drive robot. It’s primary mechanism is a 4-wheel shooter mounted on a pivot. This mechanism allowed C# to score notes into the Speaker (the primary scoring object on the field) from several places. The Pivot that the Shooter was mounted on also allowed us to intake from the human player station (called the Source) directly, without the need of another mechanism. To intake from the ground, we used a virtual four-bar Intake with rollers made out of a very grippy material.

The robot performed quite well, advancing to the New England District Championship; as well as winning the Engineering Inspiration Award at the NE District Waterbury Event and making it to the final-four in the elimination bracket at the NE District Western New England Univeristy Event.
