About TorBots


We focus on proper innovation and aim for the most efficient designs in our projects. Our engineering team's ideas help the rest of the team create proper functions around the common goal of success in real life situations.


Our programming team uses Java to write the code for our robots, and fixes all of the problems that can't be fixed with a hammer or a wrench.


Our Business Operations team handles our finances and sponsorships. They are hardworking and adaptive to the situation the team goes through. They also help make sure that there will be enough money to make the year productive.
