What's New

This has truly been a remarkable season. Not only were the Bird Brains back to back finalists at the Sacramento Regional and the Central Valley Regional but have also won the Chairmans Award, Dean's List Finalist, and the Entrepreneur Award this month! The final chapter to our "story book season" has yet to be written, but we can all enjoy the best kind of satisfaction knowing that the story so far is one of talent, skill, and very hard work rewarded and recognized. We've earned our place among the best teams in FIRST. Look for us at the World Champion held in St. Louis, Missouri from April 23-26, 2014.

Who We Are

We are a high-school robotics team from Buchanan High School
in Clovis, California that participates in the annual FIRST® Robotics Competition
and we make it our purpose to spread the appreciation of Science and Technology throughout our community.

What We Do

We build robots. Each year we participate in the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) Kickoff event where a new challenge is given.
Students then design, build, test, and program a robot to complete the challenge while running the team as a business.We provide real-world engineering to students through robotics while promoting and spreading appreciation for STEM around our community.

Start Your Journey With
FIRST Today!

Focused on building an interest in science and engineering in children ages 6-9, Junior FIRST® LEGO® League (Jr.FLL®) is a hands-on program designed to capture young children's inherent curiosity.

Introduces younger students, grades four through eight, to real-world engineering challenges by building LEGO-based robots to complete tasks on a thematic playing surface.

FTC is designed for students in grades 7-12 to compete head to head, using a sports model. Teams are responsible for designing, building, and programming their robots to compete in an alliance format against other teams.

" Under strict rules, limited resources, and time limits, teams of 25 students or more are challenged to raise funds, design a team "brand," hone teamwork skills, and build and program robots to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors.
