To our school, we're the robotics team. However, to be a successful FIRST team, so much more is necessary than just robotics. We don't just build robots - we build friendships, skills, connections, passions, and memories. In this way, we not only build for ourselves, but help students both inside and outside of the team grow.

Who We Are

"FIRST Robotics is the hardest fun you'll ever have."
-Mr. Cannon, Lead Mentor

The RoBucs were founded in 2010, with eight students, focused on growing the team in student membership, as well as improving their skills as students and team-members. Now, the team consists of 29 students, who are similarly focused on improving their own skills, as well as the team itself. The team is also working to improve the quality of the world around it, by participating in events such as the FIRST Lego League, as well as working to spread the ideals of FIRST across Mission Bay High School.

"Robotics is more than just an after school club, it's a family."
-Our Student Leaders

Our student leaders are experts in their divisions and work to aide the mentors in teaching members. They are all veteran members and have been on the team for usually at least two years.
