Welcome To Operation Peacce

Believe it or not, we didn't spell "peace" wrong all over our website. PEACCE stands for Practicing Engineering And Competitive Cooperative Excellence.

Our Story

Operation PEACCE Robotics started in 2010 with four teens who were interested in FIRST Robotics at the high school level. The four teens all came from different high schools, so they decided to approach Litchfield County 4-H and ask to become a 4-H team. Our first year, we went to the Litchfield County 4-H fair with a robot we borrowed from the team mentoring us. As we did more with 4-H and other public events, our team grew from just a few members who were just trying out FIRST, to a solid team where the student members are the leaders. We started meeting in an old store front, later making our way to Thomaston High School. We later moved to a local business owner’s workshop before reaching our current home at AGR Bodine. Without those early members who took a chance, we would not be here today.

Our Mission

Our mission as a 4-H robotics team is to promote engineering, leadership, and community involvement throughout the northwest corner of Connecticut. We strive to teach members leadership and technical skills that will last for their whole lives. We also get the entire team involved in community education and service.

Become a Sponsor

Operation PEACCE Robotics hasn't engineered a tree that grows money (yet), so we rely on donations from the community. We use those funds to purchase raw materials as well as pay competition fees. Take a look at the table below and see what we can give you in exchange.

Just Some Facts...

We've come a long way since the first four members joined together. Check out some of these statistics.
