Our History

The da Vinci Coders has been participating in both the JPL and MESA competitions for many years, and has consistently placed high in both of these competitions. Particularly in JPL, we have made it to finals nearly every year since we were founded, and have frequently placed in the top 5 teams. Our FIRST Robotics team was started in 2015, and we competed in the Los Angeles Regional Competition, as Team 5510, where we won the Rookie Robot of the Year. Recently, Team 5510 has developed to not just one, but two competitions annually, and we are learning more about this competition, and improving every single year. Since 2019, we've branched out into FIRST Tech Challenge.
