Howdython Time!

Watch here:  First Updates Now

It is once again time for our 7th annual fundraiser which helps the Howdy Bots pay for our shop space, robot parts and registration fees for the upcoming season.

Who We Are

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. 

Why You Should Help!

Recently, our team has doubled in size with students and mentors, so it truly is ALL hands on deck! FRC is an expensive sport and our annual budget is $150,000 and as a community team, we do not have reliable funding sources, only the generosity of individuals and businesses.

Our students have been spending months creating fun and informative content and are ready to put on an old-fashioned telethon! We can’t wait to show you how much fun the students have and how much they learn in FRC.  They are regularly gaining real-life skills working with software, tools, and methods that are used in industry and working on soft skills such as team work, leadership, and public speaking.
