We are a family of FIRST Robotics Teams based in Fremont, CA.
The Tacobots family was started in Spring of 2015 and has been growing ever since.
We hope you find our website interesting and informative. We also have an old site that you may wish to visit at Clash of Trash.
We're a little wild... after all, we're still kids.
But we work hard, because we want to do the best we can...
...but not too hard, because we're 100% fun!
MEET OUR TEAM
I am the the builder of the team. I like to build and make attachments for the robot. FLL has been inspiring, fun, and educational; and I hope that I continue to learn more in my next few years.
I like to just build off of an original idea or to experiment with something I already made to see how I can fix it. I honestly think that all of my teammates are awesome and are different than me, but also alike.
I am the researcher of the team. FLL has taught me a great deal about working together as a team, building and programming robots, and how we can use our unique skills to increase our productivity.
I am the programmer of the team. I like playing video games, having sleepovers, playing music, and programming. When I grow up I want to be a computer engineer and FLL has taught me programming which will be useful to me.
I like hanging out with my friends, playing the piano, dancing, drawing, texting with my friends, eating good food, and reading books. When I grow up I want to be a veterinarian. This is my first year in FLL and I got to learn about animals which can help me in the future.
I love to swim, play cricket, hang out with my friends, and play chess. This is my second year in FLL and I have had a lot of fun. FLL has taught me that there is not a problem that you can’t solve if you work as a team.
I love to play with legos and experiment building new things. In FLL, I learned about different strategies to use, programming, and how to work with different people. I improved on public speaking, creating ideas, and building robots with an EV3 kit.
I am one of the programmers on the team. I like to program because doing what adults do is just fun. FLL taught me lots of things, such as, working as a team, programming, and gracious professionalism.
I am the programmer of the team. I love to joke around and have fun while working with my teammates. I have learnt public speaking, advanced robotics programming, teamwork and cooperation to solve problems through the robotics program.
I have been playing with Legos ever since I could understand directions, and now I can show others what I can do with that knowledge.
I am a lego enthusiast. I love building and am constantly amazed at how the same pieces can come together in so many different ways! I am having a blast solving problems and working with my team. We work hard and play hard.
I built the base of our robot “The Gobbler”. I like to hangout with my team and have fun with robots and programming. In the future I thrive to excel in the field of STEM.
I am one of the robot builders on the team. I have always liked to build robots, and FLL gave me a chance to work with my team to solve real world problems. I am passionate about STEM, and will continue in the same path.
When I want to grow up, I would like to be either an engineer or a physicist. FLL taught me teamwork, programming, building robots and attachments, and the balance between work and play making my dream a step closer.
I am a car enthusiast. Ask me any car and I’ll tell you all about it. I work to align the robot at the right angle so it can go right where it is supposed to go. I really enjoy working with my teammates.

Thanks to Principal Graves, the Tacobots were invited to give a presentation at Mission San Jose Elementary School. We presented our project, “Smart Trash” to a full auditorium.
We Tacobots don’t just sit around and build and program robots all day… we also like to eat tacos!
This year’s FLL challenge is called “Trash Trek”. We received our mat back around the time school started this year. We were very excited to see what challenges lay ahead of us, but little did we know the challenges we faced required many sleepless nights. Nonetheless, all the hard work we put in will pay Read more about Setting up Trash Trek Mat[…]
