What we're all about

Breaker bots ca regional 0059
We're a High School robotics team from Pacific Grove, CA. We love to build robots and compete in regional FIRST competitions. For 2017, we built a 120lb. robot called "Archer" that was able to move fast, collect gears, and place them correctly on a peg. At the end of each match, Archer then had to climb a 3 foot rope and hang on.

Archer did this so well and so reliably that we qualified to attend the World Championships in Houston, TX where we came in 4th in our division. With almost 4500 teams competing in the same competition, this puts us in the top 1% of teams worldwide!

In the fall, we are going to three more competitions with Archer and prepare for next year's competition that starts in January. 

We're looking for donations to help us with the expenses so that we can represent Pacific Grove and compete against the best teams.
