"Doing the Improbable"

Robotics summer camp


We're very excited to announce Team 766's Robotics Summer Camp for rising 6th, 7th and 8th graders! Campers will get to build and program their own robots in small groups, allowing them to strengthen their teamwork skills. They will get mentored by the members of the Menlo-Atherton robotics team in a fun and engaging enviroment. 

Once it is confirmed that your child has gotten in, a schedule for the week will be sent out.

Our Team


FRC Team 766 is a high school robotics team based out of Menlo-Atherton High School in Atherton, California. Team 766 is committed to providing a cost-free opportunity for students in our community to explore interests in mechanical engineering, computer programming, product design, and project management.

Each year, the team participates in the international FIRST Robotics Competition, in which teams from across the world work to build a fully functional, 120-pound robot in 6 weeks to meet the year's challenge. Along the way, students gain out-of-the classroom experience in everything from machining to marketing, and forge new friendships based on intellectual curiosity, teamwork, and camaraderie.

Although the goal during the competition season is to build a world-class robot from scratch under a significant time crunch, the ambitions of the M-A Robotics team go far beyond excellence on the playing field. Team 766 strives to be a pioneer in promoting diversity in STEM by creating an atmosphere where anyone can contribute -- and learn -- in whatever discipline they choose. The M-A Robotics Team strives to maintain a 50-50 gender balance in an otherwise male-dominated activity. A robust network of mentors provides the positive environment necessary for the extraordinary young members of the team to develop the necessary skills to become leaders in the Bay Area and beyond.
