About Us



  • Poly Rabbotics Team 7042 is a FIRST robotics team that is currently entering its third year. In the past twenty-four months, Team 7042 has grown to 35-40 students, sent a robot to the LA and OC Regionals, World Championships-Houston, and won the Rookie Inspiration Award.
  • The process of this project has been a source of confidence and knowledge that we look forward to applying in college, internships, and future careers. We hope that it continues to prove to be a resource for our school.


FIRST Competition

  • FIRST is a nonprofit organization dedicated to inspiring young students to study the STEM fields. In order to reach children of all ages, FIRST organizes four different annual competitions. Each year, teams of high school students, coaches and mentors work during a six-week period to build game-playing robots designed for the competition.
  • The FIRST Robotics Competition is the focus of our Team 7042 and the most advanced FIRST program, including over 91,000 students and mentors worldwide.


Poly Rabbotics - Community Outreach

  • Team 7042 is not only committed to the education of its members but also in making a difference at other  schools. 
  • Work is continuing on a FIRST Lego League team at Roosevelt Elementary, a VEX team in the IVA charter school, and an independent STEM education program for special ed at Poly High School.
  • We are also always looking for sponsors and reaching out to the Long Beach community to help us with this commitment.
