Team 7157 began as a rookie FRC team operating out of Brea Olinda High School with little to no resources, leading to a robot built in a mentor’s garage equipped with only a drill press, and a table saw.
In spite of these setbacks, μBotics functioned as distinguished OC Regional semi-finalist, recipient of the “Rookie All-Star Award,” and competitor at the 2018 World Championships within their first year.
After a successful first season, Team 7157 expanded its reach to Fullerton, working with students from there. Continuing their local STEM enrichment, μbotics mentors the Junior High’s VEX team and Fanning Elementary School’s FIRST Lego League Program, helping host a local Vex competition in May of 2022.
At the beginning of the 2022 build season, Team 7157 moved into a facility at Brea Olinda High School. That year they won the Imagery Award and Regional Finalists at all three regionals they participated in. Qualifying for worlds that year, they returned to Houston for the first time in five years where they got quarterfinalists in their division. They are currently working on expanding their new machine shop and outreach to new members of the community.
First Robotics Competition
First Robotics Competition (FRC) is a high school robotics competition in which students have 6 weeks to create a fully functional robot form the ground up. Starting over two decades ago, the competition has continued to expand with over 3000 teams participating, annually.
