Team 4159 CardinalBotics is Lowell High School’s FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) robotics team. Since our founding year in 2012, we’ve participated in 9 years of the FRC (FIRST Robotics Competitions), where our team has around two months to design a competitive robot from scratch. During competition season, we compete with other high school teams from all around the world at State Regionals, and even World Championships. Beyond that, we strive to inspire local youth, promote creativity, encourage teamwork, and most importantly, spread STEM to our community.


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 2021 season, we participated in the FRC Infinite Recharge At Home (IRAH) and Game Design challenges. Our game animation can be seen HERE!

This year, we have made tremendous progress with our outreach initiatives, internal training programs, and other events to further our team's mission of inspiring youth STEM involvement across the San Francisco Bay Area.

We are extremely honored to have received the Concept Award and Finalist Award for the Game Design Challenge, and the Chairman's Award for the first time in our team's history! Also, special shoutout to Team 4159 Co-President Nikhita Law for receiving the Dean's List Finalist Award! Finally, HUGE thank you to all of our teammates, mentors, sponsors, and volunteers for your hard work in helping us on our journey here! We couldn't have done it without you!
