Howdy! We are the Howdy Bots, a FIRST Robotics Competition team founded in 2016. We strive to teach and inspire kids and teens about engineering through robotics. We participate in the world wide robotics league FIRST, which is dedicated to teaching life skills to children in order to help them succeed in the future. We are a community team consisting of 11 teens who are home-schooled or don’t otherwise have access to a team. We meet in North Austin, Texas, and maintain a friendly, cooperative learning environment for all members.
