Hailing from Pinecrest, FL , the BB-R8ERS (say it out loud a couple of times) are joining us October 9 & 10 for our FIRST Robotics Competition weekend at ROBOTICON.  Team 5557 BB-R8ERS (“BB-8” and “Gulliver Raiders” combined) is composed of various high school students from 9th to 12th Grade from Gulliver Preparatory School in Miami, Florida.


Team 5557 “BB-R8ERS” was formed on October 16, 2014, created to represent students from Gulliver Preparatory School in Pinecrest, Florida.

As the BB-R8ERS, we strive to design, program and create the best robot we can make by participating in the FIRST Robotics Competition, while fully emphasizing teamwork, student leadership, and gracious professionalism. We aim to promote learning and cooperation within the team as well as with other teams.

Currently, we have a very large team of 3 students.


We’re happy to welcome all three of them to ROBOTICON 2021!  Join us in celebrating and cheering on this resilient little team doing big robotics things!
