About Us


We’re the FireBears, team 2846. A FIRST Robotics Competition team out of Roseville Area High School. We’ve been a team since our debut during the 2008-2009 season.

Our robotics team is split into five sub-teams. The mechanical team builds the body of the robot, creating the metal frame and structure of the robot, using mills, saws and power tools. The computer aided design team does the blueprints of the robot, designs the concept for the robot, and creates a computer model of it using SolidWorks. The programming team codes the brains of the robot using Java code. The electrical team does the veins of the robot, wiring up the electrical, and pneumatic components of the robot. The marketing team designs the uniform, does fundraising and does web and promotional materials for the robot. If you are going to Roseville Area High School and would like to join the robotics team, attend a meeting from 7-9 on Tuesday in the Small Engine’s Room (D116).

If you’re a spectator who likes to watch robots, we participate in the State Fair Exposition in the Education Building, we also host the Minnesota Robotics Invitational, a fall off-season competition in the Roseville Area High School Lower Gym, we also go to the Minne Mini at Prior Lake High School, the Northern Lights Regional in Duluth, the 10,000 Lakes Regional at the University of Minnesota William’s Arena, and this year we will be going to the Gitchi Gummi Get Together in Duluth.

Robots are expensive. In order to continue to do the things that we do, we need donations and sponsorship. If you would like to learn more about sponsoring our robotics team, view the PDF here. Sponsors get their logos on t-shirts, and banners, and help support the next generation of STEM leaders.
