Meet our Idaho FRC Teams!!!
Team 1566 “Ammo Knights”
It is the mission of the Ammoknights to provide a fun and uplifting environment for members to learn and improve their scientific and technical skills. While working together to gain a head start for life after high school, we will better ourselves and learn to exemplify gracious professionalism. In doing so we will become a team that is efficient, cooperative and well rounded.
Team 1569 “HayWire”
Haywire Robotics, Team 1569, strives to accomplish FIRST®‘s mission in inspiring young people to be science and technology leaders while fostering well-rounded individuals with self-confidence, communication and leadership skills . An important factor with our team is that we allow all students the opportunity to generate ideas, make decisions, and actively involve themselves in team projects. Winning for our team has little to do with awards and medals and more do with the advancement of students into successful people. Haywire Robotics Team 1569 was started for the 2005 season as one of the first two FIRST® Robotics’ teams in Idaho.
Team 3562 “LiveWire”
4H LiveWire Robotics is a three time Chairman’s winning community based FRC team affiliated with Idaho State University Robotics. Located in Pocatello, 4H LiveWire team members come from Pocatello’s three high schools as well as two area high schools (Blackfoot and Marsh Valley) and home school. In addition to building our robot each year, the 4H LiveWire team is dedicated to extensive community service and outreach. We strive to inspire the community and spread STEM education through community service and by offering robotics summer camps (in Pocatello and Blackfoot) and free technology classes to senior citizens. We have a broad Literacy Platform with four original robot storybooks as well as our robot shaped mobile Little Free Library-STEM Edition. Please visit our website at LiveWireRobotics.com or Facebook page: Facebook.com/LiveWireRobotics to view our many community activities and global endeavors.
Team 1891 “The Bullbots”
FIRST Team 1891 – “The Bullbots” – is a FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) team based in Meridian, Idaho. Consisting of 25 students and mentors, the team was originally founded in 2005 in a small classroom at Mountain View High School. The Bullbots involvement in the community doesn’t stop in Meridian, though – FIRST Team 1891 prides itself on assisting many other FIRST teams throughout the northwest and beyond.
In 2006, the Bullbots competed in their first FRC competition. As rookies, the team’s primary focus was on building our robot. Since then, FIRST Team 1891 has grown into a true “team” and works to promote FIRST robotics, and engineering in general, throughout the community. Along with workshops and demonstrations, the Bullbots proudly host FIRST LEGO® Robotics Camps – a wildly successful program that gets children involved in the world of engineering and has itself spawned several FIRST LEGO® League (FLL) teams throughout the area.
Ultimately, the Bullbots have become a real club: working, sharing and giving back to the community year-round.
Team 2122 “Team Tators”
Team Tators is a member of the FIRST Robotics program and is made up by students, community sponsors and mentors. The team was founded in 2007 and has received sustaining sponsorship from the 1st year from the Micron Foundation and Hewlett Packard.

The Chickadees, FRC Team 5871, are a girl-founded FIRST Robotics team sponsored by the Boise State University College of Engineering. The Chickadees are an inclusive team that is open to all genders, races, ethnicities, and abilities. We aim to inspire future generations in STEM by ensuring that all members take an active role in team leadership and all aspects of building the robot and running the team. This team was founded, in part, to inspire girls to enter STEM fields where they have historically been underrepresented.
Team 6358 “Buhlean Operators”
The Buhlean Operators, FRC Team 6358, are excited to be 1 of just 2 Idaho Rookie teams that participated in FIRST STEAMWORKS. Based out of Buhl High School, our team has benefited from the mentoring of 4H LiveWire Robotics, FRC Team 3562. For our rookie season, we’ve focused on building a fast and reliable robot that delivers gears and consistently climbs. We’re eager to share our robot with the community and look forward to hosting several off-season activities +
to showcase our robot and further spread the message of FIRST in the Magic Valley.
Team 6680 “TRIO Robotics”
Team 7301 “The JackBots”
St. Maries Idaho
Team 7985 The TroBots
The Homedale Trobots have hit the ground running in their first season as a FIRST Robotics team. The first of its kind to come out of Homedale High School, the Trobots are a rookie team from Homedale, Idaho. The team of 12 students and 2 teacher-mentors have made successfully building the robot their main priority this year. Team members have developed collaboration, problem-solving, and critical thinking throughout the build process. The Trobots are excited to have the opportunity to join the FIRST Robotics program which has allowed them to spread STEM education through a fun, hands-on approach.
The Trobots would like to thank the Idaho Stem Action Center, Laura Moore Cunningham Foundation, and FIRST Inspires for their generous grants which provided them funding to form the team. They would also like to thank the other Idaho teams for their fantastic guidance and key support in our rookie season.
