About Our Team
Team 4466, Robots And Brain Bots Inc, was started in 2010 by a group of Sophomores at Gann Academy in Waltham Massachusetts. In our first year as a FIRST Tech Challenge team, R.A.B.B.I. competed in only 3 events: Arlington regionals, New York States, and World competitions in St. Louis. At New York State competitions, R.A.B.B.I. received the Inspire Award, due to our outreach and collaboration with local businesses. We attended World Competitions 2010-2011 in St. Louis, where we won the prestigious Inspire Award for our outreach and innovative robot design. Our team specializes in complex systems, both hardware and software, due to the fact that our team cannot compete on Saturdays.
In 2011, R.A.B.B.I. won the robotics competition at our regional event, the Inspire Award at Pace University and attended World Competitions for the second year in a row.
This year our team is comprised of 8 members:
