MillisecondBots - Our FTC Team
We are FIRST Tech Challenge team 16806, the Millisecondbots, from Central High School in St. Paul. We are the younger sibling of our sister team FRC team Minutebots 4536. Our team is made up of a few robotics program veterans as well as several new people. We have been nominated for awards and won a design award in our 2021-2022 season. Our team engages new people with what robotics can be while giving them a bit of time to get used to it before FRC. The team introduces the basics of CAD, programming, prototyping and more! We are currently in our third competing year and welcome students of all backgrounds to join us.
If you are a student at Central High and would like to find out more about joining the team, please complete this short interest form: https://forms.gle/UPniqsf6ua9vWpg49.
We invite you to be involved with the Millisecondbots! Whether you are interested in mentoring, volunteering at our events, cheering us on at competitions, or helping our team members get to meetings and events, we appreciate your support. You are welcome to stop by our meetings to see what we are working on!

Mentors are key to the success of our team. As a volunteer mentor, you’ll work in partnership with students, sharing your knowledge and experiences to help the team achieve their goals. You’ll help facilitate team decisions, ensuring all students are heard and encouraged to think creatively, critically, and independently. Mentors encourage student leadership and emphasize FIRST Core Values and Gracious Professionalism within our team, at competitions, and in our community.
The Millisecondbots welcomes mentorship in a variety of areas, both technical and non-technical including:
Build / Mechanical Engineering
Design Methodology / Computer Aided Design
Fundraising / Outreach /
Leadership / Project Management
The time commitment varies by role. For the safety of our students, adult mentors must follow all policies of the Minutebots, the Saint Paul Public Schools, and FIRST.
