About the AdamBots
AdamBots Team 245


The AdamBots are fortunate to have several outstanding corporate sponsors. Without their generous donations, the AdamBots would not be able to participate in the various competitions and events. The team is grateful to have such supportive sponsors who allow us to persue and achive the goals and obstacles presented to us throughout the year.
