About Our Team

The Beach Bots, supported by dedicated engineering mentors, provides High School students an amazing opportunity to learn science, engineering, computer programming, computer graphics, marketing, business management, and many other career-oriented skills in a hands-on environment that emphasizes Christian values and ideology surrounding science and competition. Learn more about our program’s impact here.

In January of each year, FIRST FRC teams are presented with a new game and given only six weeks to design, build, and program a robot to play the game. Teams join together in alliances at regional competitions to compete head to head and crown a champion.

Over the years, The Beach Bots have won 23 regional competitions, numerous design awards, and the FRC World Championship title in 2005 and 2016. Read more about our team history here.
