FIRST Robotics Team 1557 (12 Volt Bolt) is an all-inclusive high school robotics team located at 211 N. Grove Street in downtown Eustis, Florida. We have members from Lake and Volusia County schools, as well as homeschooled students.

We have been an FRC team since 2004.  12 Volt Bolt is made up of several sub-teams, including mechanical, electrical, programming, website management, awards, marketing, public relations, and community outreach. In addition to building robots, we also have a strong community presence. 12 Volt Bolt participates in events such as the Mt. Dora Fourth of July Parade, the Triangle Elementary Science Fair, Robotics Discovery Day at the Eustis Library, and the Eustis Street Fest. The team is also active in volunteering for local charities.

Come Visit Us!

FRC Robotics Team 1557 (12 Volt Bolt) invites all area high school students, parents, teachers, professionals, and potential mentors to visit our Clubhouse at 211 N. Grove Street in Eustis on any Thursday between 6pm and 8pm. Those interested in joining the team will have an opportunity to talk with team members and mentors and see how the team works. Building robots is only one aspect of what the team has to offer since FIRST Robotics provides hands-on experience in graphic arts, public relations, web design, computer programming, team spirit, marketing, and mechanical and electrical engineering. There is something for everyone on our robotics team!
