Team 4159 CardinalBotics is a FIRST Robotics Competition team based in Lowell High School, San Francisco, California. Every year, we compete in the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC), an international high school competition where each team has 6 weeks to design and create a 120 pound robot for a given game. As a high school group, CardinalBotics seeks to inspire youth through creativity, innovation, and teamwork in our community. This experience allows students to develop an interest in science, technology, engineering, and math, also known as STEM.


CardinalBotics inspires youth by promoting creativity, teamwork, and commitment to our community. We raise support for FIRST and its mission by innovating solutions to technical challenges and publicly promoting science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Through our work as a team, we develop the skills necessary to become leaders of a dynamic and increasingly technology-dependent world.


In the 2019 season, we built our most ambitious robot yet, IO. We competed in the San Francisco and Silicon Valley Regionals, ending as Finalists in the San Francisco Regional. Although we were unable to compete in 2020's game: Infinite Recharge, we have recently welcomed our new members for the 2020 - 2021 season and look forward to training them to compete in the 2021 Internal Robotics Competition.
