Team Waffles (FRC 9012), from Assets School, joined the FRC Competition in 2023 after 5 years of FTC seasons. Based in Honolulu, Hawaii, our mission is to mirror FIRST Core Values by spreading STEM and expanding our knowledge of engineering, programming, and more. As a rookie FRC Team, we received the Highest Rookie Seed Award; the Rookie Inspiration Award; and joined the final round of eliminations as a 4th alliance member backup team and received the Regional Finalists Award.

Our experience in FRC is limited and we hope to gain more skills and knowledge for us to continue learning in the FRC community. We appreciate the many teams that have been actively assisting us, such as Team Magma 3008 from Kalani High School, Team Crusaders 4270 from Saint Louis School, and Team W.A.F.F.L.E.S. 4476 from Kingston, Ontario, Canada.
