Welcome to System Overload Robotics!

Large Logo Official

System Overload Robotics is a devoted community FIRST team in the Tri-Valley. We are dedicated above all else to STEM education. From mentors to members, we provide access to hands-on learning through FIRST Robotics Competition and other STEM events throughout the year. We are open to all in the Tri-Valley and are based at the Livermore Municipal Airport.

Our Mission

System Overload provides a learning environment that educates students and fosters new and innovative ideas. We are committed to inspiring kids through engineering projects and real-life experiences.

We provide our members with an environment to further their skills and interests in engineering; primarily in software development, basic electrical engineering, manufacturing, industry tool use and safety, and general team organization and cooperation. We work with a team of volunteer mentors and about thirty high school students in the Tri-Valley. We participate in FRC for about six months out of the year, and spend the rest of the time developing our skills in preparation for the next season.

Our Team!

Several of our current members have participated in the previous seasons of FRC, giving us a large pool of experience to draw from. System Overload Robotics prides itself in promoting diversity in our team, both in promoting women to pursue leadership positions and in the creation of an inclusive, respectful team environment.  Compared to the STEM industry average of 28% of women in STEM fields, System Overload Robotics excels in the promotion of women, with 40% of our team mentors being female. 40% of our leadership positions are held by female or non-binary members, in comparison to 12% in the professional field.

In our very first year, we won the Highest Rookie Seed award and led a rookie alliance as the 5th place team and made it to semi-finals. The 2018 season was our first year as Explorer Post #987 chartered by Robot Garden, and our Marketing lead, Blanchard Kenfack, won the prestigious FRC Dean’s List for the Sacramento Regional. In 2019, at the Monterey Bay Regional, we were regional finalists, we won the regional Safety Award, the pit safety award, and Hardit Singh won the “Safety Star of the Day” award. In 2021, we were competition finalists in the CalGames competition held in San Jose, CA. The successes of System Overload Robotics continue and we look forward to this next year!
