About Us




We are a robotics team from Austin, Texas that participates in FRC (First Robotics Competition). Our team consists of home-schooled and private schooled teens who do not normally have the opportunity to participate. In fact, our team was created because some of our team members wanted a team, but couldn’t join any because they were home schooled! We are comprised of students with a passion for STEM education, and parents, some of whom are experienced professional engineers and business leaders. 

Are you interested in becoming a Howdy Bot? We are looking for enthusiastic, focused, and dedicated 13-18 year olds to join our teamContact Us for more information.
