Our Origins

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.

GROWTH

After a successful first season, Team 7157 expanded its reach to Sunny Hills High School, which provided a machine shop and an influx of aspiring engineering students. Continuing their local STEM enrichment, this past year μbotics started and mentors the Junior High’s VEX team and Fanning Elementary School’s FIRST Lego League Program. 

What We Do
Design

Once build season starts, students utilize CAD (Computer Aided Deisgn) to create 3D model designs of the robot.

Build

Students work together to bring their robot design to life, using power tools and machinery under the supervision of professional adults.

Electrical Work

Along with the mechanical aspect of the robot, students are also responsible for wiring the control system and safely distributing power . 

Programming

To actually get the robot moving, the team must write the code for controlling the Robot

Business

All funds are student managed. This gives members an opportunity to practice applying for grants, handling finances, and using professional communication skills.

We Have a Lot of Fun!

Although this experience does require a lot of hard work, the road to get there is filled with fun. Every member is always left with tons of great memories and knowledge! 

Our Future

 μBotics plans to continue our efforts with branching within our local school districts, businesses, and fellow FRC teams to develop and sustain crucial partnerships. We aim to expand our STEM pipeline to reach more schools at the Middle and Elementary school levels by increasing our student involvement as mentors and starting teams in lower competitive circuits, such as FLL and VEX.
