Located in Phoenix, Arizona, we are the Python Robotics team. Established through the Phoenix Coding Academy, Pythons Robotics was founded by the first 9th grade class of the newly opened school in 2016. We previously participated in the FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC team#11578), and currently in FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC team#6833), as well as in various engineering projects and coding events.

Our team is comprised of students from Phoenix Coding Academy, interested students from Central High School, and students in the community who do not have access to a robotics program otherwise. Coding is a small specialty school within the Phoenix Union High School District. The team builds in the school’s makerspace, which is a workshop space designed for all students to learn, create, and innovate. The team consists of approximately 25 students. Our lead mentor Bradley Voracek oversees the club along with two co-mentors Nelson Barba and Rob Mainieri. Former Mentors include George Cardenas, Chrissy Koppe, and an electrical engineer from Boeing
