Bayshore Christian Ministries' Robotics Program
BCM currently fields teams that compete in two different levels of First Robotics. We welcome new participants and coaches at all levels.
For the past five years, we have had up to three teams in the First Lego League (FLL). This fall, we have 20 students in grades 4-8 in two different teams – the Robot Spartans and the Black Knights. With such high participation, we may form a third, rookie, team that builds and programs robots, but would only compete inunofficial events. FLL teams meet every Saturday through mid-November.
Building on the successes of five years in FLL, we are putting together a first-year team in First Robotics Competition (FRC). FRC is generally considered the premier league for high school robotics programs. Twelve students in grades 8-12 are building and programming full-sized robots in preparation for the competitive season this spring. The FRC team meets every Saturday through late April.
