We are FIRST robotics Team 5196, Breaking Bot, based in Parkland, Florida. Founded in 2014, we have built a robot each year to compete in the FIRST Robotics Competition and have won multiple awards.  In 2014 we won the Rookie All Star Award and attended FRC Championships in St. Louis. In 2015, we won the Industrial Design Award at the South Florida Regional.

Every year in January, FIRST announces a new game which is shown to us during Kickoff. After that, we have six weeks to design, build, and program a robot that is capable of completing the necessary tasks.
