TNT's mission in Nevis School is to advocate for science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum in classes, educate and inform students about current technology challenges and opportunities for our program and region, and entertain with interactive robot demos across FIRST, VEX, and LEGO robotics.
We are committed to be a student forward, mentor supported team, where 'failure' is taught as a positive.
Neo motors- These motors are brushless, very lightweight, and strong. They operate more effectively and there is no need to replace them as often. These motors come pre programed.

Washing machine- It holds five 7 inch balls. The washing machine is 20 inches in diameter. It spins counter clockwise and indexes the balls for fast shooter action.
Collector- The collector is made of 3 pieces of hex shaft and 15 hex wheels. It uses the bumpers to collect balls.
