meet our team
Blue Box Bots #8907 is an FTC team sponsored by Illinois 4-H. Since August 2014, our team has designed, built, and programmed robots to compete in the annual FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) competition.
FIRST robotics is more then just a robot building competition. Our team works hard to achieve difficult goals. This helps us...
become technologically savvy through STEM Education
build our problem-solving skills as we strive to work as a team
enhance our teamwork, presentation, and communication skills
become responsible young adults as we practice Gracious Professionalism
Many team members come into the program with little to no experience building robots and graduate with valuable knowledge and understanding about a variety of subjects including the engineering design process, Computer-Aided Design (CAD) tools, mechanical concepts, and/or software programming.
