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.
