Despite being based in San Diego County, we have ensured our team uses our skills to improve the lives of others on a global scale. We have traveled to Tijuana, Mexico for the last 7 years, where our students use the robotics skills they learn to build houses for families in need. We have built 16 houses so far, and cannot wait to return next season to further our impact in the region.
Team 2485 first visited to Poland in 2016 when we started mentoring FRC Team 5883, the country’s first FRC team. With 5883, we have started 14 FLL and FLL Jr. teams in Poland and Ukraine. In 2018, 5883 visited our shop to learn more about our team. Team 2485 also helped to host the inaugural Robotics Camp in Kraśnik, Poland in 2018, with over 40 children attending, and has since upheld this commitment by playing a role in this camp in the years since.
