In 2016, one of our team members unfortunately passed away from MLD. This student’s name was Trey Butler. Trey Butler was a member of Team 1559 from 2011 to 2015 and was planning to attend Rochester Institute of Technology as a mechanical engineer until he was diagnosed with Metachromatic Leukodystrophy, MLD, and passed away March 12th, 2016. His legacy will live on in the hearts and minds of Team 1559 as we honor him by fundraising money to fight against MLD each year. This year in addition to our annual fundraiser we have decided to make our website the ‘Trey Blue’ color to further promote awareness of MLD.Click here to learn more
Team 1559, Devil Tech, was founded by Peter Fleckenstein and a group of passionate students in 2004. We are a FIRST robotics team that focuses on student growth and development. We strive to balance the mentor/student development of all aspects of the team - our robot is built by students, aided by mentors. Click here to learn more.
There are many ways that someone can contribute to the team. For example we always are very greatful to new sponsors, and we are always looking for new mentors and students to join the team. Another great way to support us is through donating to our FRC, FLL, FJLL programs. Click here to learn about more ways to support our team!
