"Sweet But Deadly"

Mission Statement

"The Benzene Bots' mission is to empower students in our community by teaching engineering skills and processes while integrating business management principles via hands-on experiences. We strive to compete at our best with complex critical thinking techniques while always acknowledging room for improvement."


About Us

Our team is student-driven, where students take charge of designing and building the robot. It mostly consists of IA East students, but occasionally students from other high schools join the team as well. The team is managed by mentors, who guide students and teach engineering as well as business planning and leadership skills. In addition to building a robot, we spread the FIRST message and demonstrate our robot's capabilities at public events

"The Ultimate Sport for the Mind"


"Under strict rules and limited time and resources, teams of high school students are challenged to build industrial-size robots to play a difficult field game in alliance with other teams, while also fundraising to meet their goals, designing a team “brand,” and advancing respect and appreciation for STEM within the local community."
