Welcome to the Team 57 Leopards' website! We are from Houston, Texas and in 2016 are in our 19th year of competition in the FIRST Robotics Competition. The team is supported through the generosity of its many wonderful sponsors. We are excited to be seeing old friends again and looking forward to making new ones.

The Leopards competed in the Lone Star Regional in Houston, Texas and in the FIRST World Championship in St. Louis Missouri for the 2016 FIRST season.

The Leopards continue to leave their spots all over their community. The Leopards participated in the Teacher Give Back Program. For the Teacher Give Back Program, the Leopards prepared school bulletin boards and welcome back packets for all of the teachers at the school. The Leopards welcomed incoming freshman at the Freshman Orientation held at the start of the school year. At the Freshman Orientation, these incoming students enjoyed refreshments provided by Team 57. In addition, the freshman students had the opportunity to see a robot demo and engineering projects done my Team 57 team members.

Team 57 students have been very active in STEM activities. Students from Team 57 have participated in the One Mile, One Pound Rocketry Program, High Altitude Rocketry Program, and competed in various STEM competitions during the summer and fall.

The team maintained its community outreach programs volunteering at FIRST events. The Leopards did FIRST demos at the HISD Showcase event, for their sponsors and school events, continued their Community Outreach Programs of Toys for Tots, school-wide Teacher/Staff Appreciation program and sustained previous community outreach programs. The Leopards are looking forward to another great season in FIRST.
