Howdy Bots is for teens, age 13-18 who love STEM and robots! Our team meets year-round with an increased time commitment (about 30 hours each week) during build season (January & February) and competition season (March & April). We are a community team, meaning we allow any student to join regardless of school affiliation or educational pathway.


Recruiting happens between June and October, with October 1st the last day to join the team before each build season. If you or your student is interested in joining the Howdy Bots, please contact us to schedule a visit. You can also email us at [email protected].


Mentors are a vital part of the Howdy Bots!  We welcome professionals to join our team on a full or part-time basis and help impart their knowledge to the kids.  Our skill-building is built on an apprenticeship model that you can read more about in our mentor handbook below.   If you would love to talk more about working with the Howdy Bots or coming for a visit to learn more about our team, please contact us!
