We are the Botcats, FRC Team #3653 proudly representing West Broward High School. Our Team consists of students in grades 9-12. We welcome students not only from West Broward High School, but any high school, including students from the home school community. We encourage you to come out to our events, ask for your support at our fundraisers, and hope you take pride in the accomplishments of your next generation of scientists and engineers - the students of Broward County.
We Are Fighters
During the final rounds in the March 2017, South Florida Regional Competition, we proved our tenacity to the world. Our alliance won the first match, lost the second match, and with the crowd on their feet we entered our third tie-breaker match, then a fourth tie-breaker, and finally won the fifth tie-breaker. Our alliance roared knowing that we had won our way to Championships.
We Are Winners
With this win came our ticket to the World’s Competition in Houston, Texas. Championships was a truly unforgettable experience. The George R. Brown Convention Center hosted hundreds of teams from around the world. We are proud to say that in our division of 63 teams, we peaked at Rank 3 on the leaderboards. Although we did not end up placing at Worlds this year we had a new level of success that we hope to continue in the years to come.
