It’s that time again – when we feature our registered teams in our ROBOTICON Team Spotlight series!  First up is first registered FIRST Robotics Competition team # 1557, 12 Volt Bolt, of Eustis, Florida.  Here’s their story, in their words.


Founded in 2004, 12 Volt Bolt has been active member of the Lake County community. We have helped start FIRST Robotics Competition teams and coached LEGO League teams. We work hard every year to to win a second Chairman’s Banner by running robotics camps in local libraries and helping FIRST leadership in our region with presentations and demonstrations.

Interesting Team Fact: We meet and build out of a 24′ trailer!
