Come Visit Us!

FRC Robotics Team 1557 (12 Volt Bolt) invites you to visit our Clubhouse at 211 N. Grove Street in Eustis on Tuesdays between 6 and 9pm (and don’t forget about our open house!). 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!
