About Us

We are a First Lego League Robotics team –  Tacobots  #15821

The Tacobots family was started in Spring of 2015 and has been growing ever since. We call ourselves the “Tacobots” because each of us brings a unique flavor and contribution to the team. Also, we  love robots and tacos!

About FLL
FIRST = For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology. FIRST LEGO League (FLL) is an exciting and fun global robotics program, designed to ignite an enthusiasm for discovery of the basic principles of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).

Our Accomplishments:

Robot
Our robot this year is called “The Onion”. It is called so because it has ‘Layers’. The Robot is modular – wheelbase and attachments are layered on a reusable core and can be replaced for different situations. Also, the robot make us cry sometimes.

Project
Our project this year is called SWAT”. SWAT means Storm Water Analysis Tool – a tool that consists of a Sampler which samples stormwater periodically and a sensor which analyzes presence of motor oil and captures the data. The team wants to gather data  about the stormwater pollution and provide data to cities. We expect that by deploying the SWAT, we would be able to help Cities manage their resource dollars effectively.

Support Us
The team seeks sponsorships and grants from businesses and people like you to help cover the expenses and greatly appreciates the generosity of all sponsors. The success of our team and our diverse outreach is dependent on the financial support we receive from our sponsors. We would like you to be one of our 2017 sponsors.

The grants we receive help us pay for registration at various competitions, parts, and equipment. The money is also used in our outreach as we mentor budding teams and introduce children to robotics.

I hope that you will become part of Team Tacobot’s success. You can reach us through our team email sponsorship@tacobots.org
