Team Summary

Founded in 2009 by a group of Barat Academy students and parents, FIRST FRC team 2838 works to enrich its members’ STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) knowledge. The name EagleBots comes from Barat Academy’s mascot, the eagle. The eagle represents strength, spirit, potential, and truth. These perfectly represent our team and what we do!

Our team operates as a part of the FIRST Robotics Competition. FIRST (For the Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is an organization with a goal to promote modern scientific and technological mindsets within the younger generation through challenging and exhilarating competition. Our team epitomizes this goal! Members of the EagleBots get to work with experts in STEM fields to design, create, program, and operate a robot weighing more than one-hundred pounds. There are also opportunities to design the robot through CAD programs, create business plans and work to increase team outreach through different mediums. Our team is designed to include anyone who is interested!

As of January 2017, our team consists of nineteen dedicated Barat Academy and Fulton School students, four mentors from local businesses and family connections, two Barat Academy teachers and the support of all of our administrators. These supporters and members are all working to build life skills while instilling a sense of teamwork, community, and personal growth.
