FIRST Alumni

The Interact Club of Krunch Robotics / FIRST® Team 79 Krunch is more than just a group of students, mentors, and volunteers who meet to build a robot; we are a family that strives to take care of its community while working on common goals as an award-winning team. Contact us today to learn more.


Our members currently meet at the East Lake Community Library, 4125 East Lake Road, in Palm Harbor every Wednesday at 5:30pm and up to six days per week during build season. Our seasons run as follows:


PRE-SEASON – August through December

  • Organize the team’s returning members and teach new members the skills necessary to participate in upcoming competitions.

  • Sub-teams are formed with different specialties, and basic skill sets are taught by seasoned students and engineering mentors.

BUILD SEASON – January through March

  • Begins in January at the Kickoff event, where the FIRST® organization announces the new season’s game challenge to thousands of teams throughout the world.

  • Team members design and build a robot capable of performing the tasks within the specific FIRST® game challenge.

​COMPETITION SEASON – March through April

  • Our team traditionally competes in two FIRST® regional competitions.

  • If the team qualifies during one of the two regional events, they go on to compete in the FIRST® Championship event.

​POST SEASON – May through August

  • Focuses on new student recruitment, robot demonstrations, community outreach, and fundraising events.
