FRC Team 3932: Dirty Mechanics
Organized as the Boca Raton 4-H Science and Technology Club, highly motivated students from 14 different high schools and home schools encompass our community-based FIRST FRC Team 3932 “Dirty Mechanics.” With the support of our great sponsors and dedicated mentors, students apply concepts from daytime STEM classes to the "hands-on" nuts and bolts of building a 120 lb. robot nights and weekends.
Tripling in size and girls on our team, and a 2:1 student/mentor ratio; we have grown into a year-round program. Our goals are gracious professionalism, technical & leadership skill-building, strategic partnerships, and team sustainability, and breaking a gender gap in technology.
Off-season, we support our community through our Bike Repair Outreach, Cereal Drive for Boca Helping Hands and most recently during COVID-19 3D printing "ear savers" for first responders PPE. To inspire new members, mentors, and sponsors to join us we promote FIRST through robot demos, holiday parades and volunteer at FIRST tournaments. Internationally, with one of our sponsors, we started FLL teams in Ghana!
Investing in the future, our graduates have earned over $980,000 in FIRST, 4H, and other scholarships and grants from FIRST participation. Our initial team members are graduating college and landing challenging, well paying jobs!
We have been FRC World Championship competitors twice! First in 2014, and in 2016, qualifying for FRC Championships as Alliance Champions at the 2014 & 2016 South Florida Regionals. We have also been honored with multiple Regional awards and have been selected as Alliance Partners for Regional Finals matches. We also participate in off-season competitions like Mission Mayhem and Space Coast Showdown and volunteer at FIRST competitions.
