Next up in our ROBOTICON FIRST Robotics Competition Team Spotlight: Team 1902 Exploding Bacon Robotics!

Team 1902 is a Central Florida 4-H community robotics team. In 2019, they became the first Florida team to win the World Championship Chairman’s Award and enter the FIRST Hall of Fame. They won the 2023 Orlando Regional and are the creators of #FIRSTLikeAGirl.

Exploding Bacon’s mission is: “Have fun doing cool things that help people.” They are known for their spirit and mascot, Wilbur and their team cheer is “Oink, Oink, Boom!”
