About Us 

The AstroBruins Robotics Team (19819) is based at the Santa Clara High School’s 49ers STEM Leadership Institute. Our mission is to create an inclusive, diverse, world-class team that is able to cooperate efficiently and productively to make an innovative, top of the line robot. After a successful season last year, we are looking forward to this year’s challenge!


Within our team, there are established sub-groups which specialize in different tasks that maximize our collective efficiency and productivity. All members are part of multiple subgroups which fosters an environment where everyone is able to grow and glow. 


We hope to use the opportunities presented to us by FIRST to the fullest extent and inspire fellow students with similar interests. FTC was initially a chance to try something new and different and we hope to inspire others to do the same.

Our Motto: Dream. Build. Inspire.

Our tem

Our Team

Within our team, there are established sub-groups that specialize in different tasks that maximize our collective efficiency and productivity. Members are not restricted to one leading subgroup. In fact, many members overlap within these subgroups. We are all responsible for what our team achieves and do our work with this belief in mind. Our team is working towards the same goal, and by putting the concept of sub-teams in place, we are expediting our progress toward that goal and improving the quality of our work.

Robot Build

This team leads robot-building sessions, devises gaming strategies, creates new robot mechanisms, prototypes the robot and its functions and parts, and communicates continuously with the Programming team to have the robot function coalesced with the developed code.
