Who are we?


We are the Bot Side, the Community Charter School of Cambridge's 2016-2017 robotics team for the First Tech Challenge, founded in late October 2011.


Our Goal:

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to see and work with robotics, and so we put effort toward hosting and participating in as many outreach events as possible.


As a team in our fifth year of competing in the FIRST Tech Challenge, we look forward to going to competitions and participating.  We are currently in the middle of brainstorming ideas and testing out our robot’s program.


We also equalized for the Massachusetts States Competition Bridgewater State University! Over the past few years, The Bot Side has won numerous awards including the Connect Award, Innovative Award and others. We are excited to invite all our fans to cheer us on! Check out our Facebook link to stay up to date with progress here.


This is the competition this year which is called the

Velocity Vortex.
