The RoboBees, FIRST team 836, is a robotics team located in St. Mary’s County, Maryland. FIRST (For the Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) was founded by inventor and engineer Dean Kamen in 1989. A few years later, The RoboBees were created in 2001 by Mr. David Buddenbohn, a teacher at the Dr. James A. Forrest Career and Technology Center.

Since then we have grown into an incredibly diverse and unique student body who comes from seven different schools as well as home schooled students. Being located near PAX River Naval Air Station, engineering permeates our local culture.
