We are Metallic Thunder!

FIRST Robotics Team 3303

We are a Christian homeschooled high school FIRST robotics team based in California’s central valley. We work to equip students with the technical and business skills they need to become the next generation of leaders.

Team 3303 has come a long way over the years. We had humble beginnings, building our first robot on our coach’s dining room table and two garages. We are now working out of Fresno Ideaworks, a maker-space based out of downtown Fresno, who have generously donated their space, tools, and time into our work. The previous two years, Metallic Thunder has had the wonderful opportunity to attend World Championships, first in St. Louis, Missouri and last year in Houston, Texas.

Our team is committed to showing Christ-like honor, love, and gracious professionalism to our fellow teammates, mentors, opponents, and those in our community. In our community outreach efforts, we’ve been able to reach 3,000 people. Our vision is to help transform the culture around STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Art Mathematics).

Everything our team gets the opportunity to do would not be possible without our generous sponsors. We would like to say a huge thank you to the individuals and companies who have supported our team. Roll Thunder!
