The Mission

Our Purpose

Our team seeks to inspire its team members and others to pursue STEM, and the robots we build are the culmination of a thoughtful and diligent design process. As an innovative team with members spread across multiple states and countries, we continually develop our systems of communication by utilizing various online media in tandem with physical build sessions. Our geographical diversity gives us multiple perspectives, which we utilize to remain as strong and competitive as possible.

Our Working Environment

Our collaborative working environment is a unique one because due to being an online school we have members around the globe. Everyone can participate in different ways, focusing on hardware or software, and meeting either offsite or onsite. Our club is dedicated to including every student in our school that is interested in robotics, and no matter one's skill level, there's always a place for them here.

Offsite Meetings

Offsite meetings are held on Adobe Connect, and everyone, no matter their location, can join in to brainstorm on strategy, design, and algorithms.

Onsite Meetings

Onsite Meetings are held in California's Bay Area, where local members meet to physically construct the robot, and test software in-person.
