We are a community robotics team from Austin, TX that participates in FRC (First Robotics Competition) with students who range from 13 to 18 years old. We accept students who do not have access to FRC through their schools or existing organizations. In fact, our team was created because some students wanted to participate, but there was no team available for them! We are comprised of students with a passion for STEAM education, and mentors, whom are experienced professional engineers and business leaders.
Every January, we receive a set of rules and details for the year’s game, and then have 6-8 weeks to strategize, design, model, and construct a 120-pound robot. Our team operates as a small engineering company, with responsibilities that also include marketing, fundraising, programming, and so much more.
Are you interested in becoming a Howdy Bot? We are looking for enthusiastic, focused, and dedicated 13-18 year olds to join our team! Click here for more information.
