Hailing from Orlando, 4-H Exploding Bacon Team 1902 sizzles with success. This Central Florida Hall of Fame Robotics Team won the World Championship Chairman’s Award in 2019 in Houston.
Our goal is to inspire and support our students by teaching them hands-on machinery skills, problem solving, strategic thinking, public speaking, teamwork, and leadership skills essential in any career.
Our mission statement is to have fun doing cool things that help people. As such we are STEM advocates, creating programs to further STEM education and participating in numerous outreach events. Our mascot, Wilbur, helps us make it loud along with our signature cheer: Oink, Oink, Boom!
The team is grateful to their sponsors: Lockheed Martin, Magnus Hi-Tech, Comcast, DoD STEM, BAE Systems, Disney Voluntears and Intuitive Foundation.
You’ll be able to see Exploding Bacon in all their orange and green glory at ROBOTICON 2021 on October 9 & 10!
