Who Are We?
The Utah Valley Provotypes is a FIRST Robotics team located in Provo, Utah. All high school-aged students from the surrounding Provo area are welcome to bring their skills and knowledge to the team. We currently have about 8 students from several high schools in the Utah Valley. The majority of our mentors are college students and FIRST alumni from nearby colleges. This is our fifth year participating in the FIRST Robotics Competition and we are excited for this upcoming season.
Our first year, 2018, we won the Rookie All-Star award at the Utah regional and qualified for the World Championships in Houston, Texas. We ranked 13th place in our division and won the highest seeded rookie award. In 2019, we attended the Utah regional. We were selected to be in an alliance and played in the semifinals. In 2020, we attended the Utah Regional competition, but we did not qualify. The pandemic prevented us from attending the Colorado Regional competition, and the season ended early. In 2021, FIRST organized an online competition in response to the pandemic which used the game from the previous year. Last year in 2022, we attended the Utah Regional and we were selected by the first seed alliance and were able to help them win the competition which qualified us once again for the World Championships in Houston, Texas.
