Adults serve as mentors to guide the student members in team management, engineering, computer programming, and essential leadership skills. The goal is to inspire students to pursue degrees in science, technology, engineering and math while teaching them gracious professionalism.

Exploding Bacon 1902 was the 2013 World Championship Kamen Family Imagery Award winner, placed in the top 4 teams for the Digital Media Award in 2014 and has won 50 awards over 10 seasons.

2016 FRC Game: FIRST STRONGHOLD SMFIRST STRONGHOLD is played on a 27 ft. by 54 ft. field. Each alliance commands one tower, five defenses, and a ‘secret passage’ which allows their robots to restock on ammunition, called boulders. One defense in each alliance’s set of five, the low bar, is a permanent part of the field. Three defenses are selected strategically by the alliance prior to the start of their match. The final defense changes periodically by audience selection. Read more about the game.  Exploding Bacon, 9 Years of Sizzle 9 years of Exploding Bacon’s robots and competitions.
