TACOBOTS ROBOTICS TEAM
2016 Norcal Champions
First place winner at the Northern California Championships.
2016 CORE VALUES AWARD
Winner of the “Core Values” award at the Niles Qualifier.
We are a FIRST Lego League team based in Fremont, CA. Our team number is #15821.
We formed our team in Spring of 2015. We didn't all know each other when we first got together, but we do all go to Mission San Jose Elementary school. We are a group of 9 kids ranging from 9 to 12 years old, from 4th grade to 6th grade. Four of us have competed in FLL last year, while for the rest of us, the 2015-2016 season was our very first year in FLL.
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!

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.
