The Friarbots visit our sister all girls school Cornelia Connelly for their club rush. The Friarbots set a goal to introduce more girls to their Robotics program. Thank you goes to Maggie and Mrs. Wagner for helping to arrange things with Connelly. Great job getting the message out to our sister schools! ... See MoreSee Less
The Friarbots invest their lunch showing other students how much fun they have in Robotics during the Servite Club Rush event. They did a fantastic job collecting more than 60 names of students interested in the Robotics program. This is 2-3 times as many as we've had in previous years. It's great to see so many students coming to Servite interested in robotics. Great Job Friarbots! ... See MoreSee Less

The Friarbots host 3 other teams in representing FIRST Robotics at the LA Fleet Week event the four days of Labor Day weekend. The event attracted over 150,000 people over the weekend and many were lined up along the edge of the field cheering the robots on. The kids especially enjoyed "feeding the robots" and watching them shoot balls, pickup gears and climbing. On Monday, they demonstrated in an outdoor basketball arena in the shadows of the USS Iowa with it's big guns in the background. All the teams did a great job of attracting the crowds and informing them about FIRST and STEM. The event coordinators were very happy with our participation and have asked us to consider doing it again next year. Great job Friarbots! ... See MoreSee Less

It's been a long time coming and we've invested a lot to make it happen. We've finally started our Engineering class at Servite! We chose the Project Lead the Way (PLTW) Introduction to Engineering Design to begin Servite's journey in developing a STEM program seeded by our successes in the Friarbots Robotics program. We have a talented new teacher in Wayne Dinunzio leading the effort. The class is sparking excitement from the students as they have already been building designs and testing them in class. Everyone is having fun while learning about the Engineering design process. Thank you to everyone who helped us get to this point. Photo is of Wayne teaching the very first day of Servite's Introduction to Engineering Design class. ... See MoreSee Less

The Friarbots hosting the Boeing Demo in Seal Beach. We had five teams demonstrating FRC and FTC robots. There were lots of visitors and the students did a great job engaging them in conversations about FIRST and how robotics has influenced their lives. Afterwards, the teams were treated to a tour of the Boeing Operations Center that field airline calls 24/7 from all over the world. Then they took a short walk over to the "Bone Yard" were Boeing has a 737 aircraft in pieces that they were able to walk through and learn about how airplanes are built and what they look like inside. Great job Friarbots and thanks for making the event very successful! ... See MoreSee Less
