Meet FRC Team 1369: Minotaur of Tampa, FL!

Middleton RoboticsWatch out for the horns! FRC Team 1369 Minotaur, is thundering in from Tampa, Florida!  Take a look!

______________

Team 1369 Minotaur is based out is based out of Middleton High School in Tampa, Florida. We are a title 1 STEM school and 1 of only 7 in the nation to be STEM accredited. Our team is eight years old.

At Roboticon 2014 we won a special recognition in the Roboticon Challenge for our Middleton RobotCommunity Outreach. A couple of weeks ago at the South Georgia Regional we went to the finals and were extremely proud to place second. Our team loves to help out in the community by doing toy drives, hosting and mentoring FLL tournaments, and helping other FRC teams establish themselves.

Our team is made up of children all over Hillsborough County, including homeschoolers. We love to give a chance to everyone to be a part of something as inspirational and life changing as FIRST. This is a main reason why some of our team members have created and mentor their own FLL teams. Nearly all of our alumni are now in top ranking universities and studying in some form of technological or medical field. We give a huge amount of thanks to our now two year sponsor, NASA, for without them we would not be able to have two robots or the opportunity to travel to out of state competitions.

We’re looking forward to seeing the Minotaur herd at the Orlando Regional in just a few short days!

Go Team!
