What is Team Voltage?

Since its inception in 1999, Team Voltage has been working to raise awareness of Engineering and FIRST within its community. By 2007, the team’s success in this endeavor had allowed us to spin off FRC teams in three additional high schools in addition to multiple Lego League teams.

Melbourne High School and Team Voltage have been honored to host the local FRC Kickoff event in 2010 and 2011 supporting all Brevard County teams as well as Florida teams outside our county.

In 2002, Team Voltage was the first FRC team in Brevard County to be asked to present in front of the school board. Through the team’s active involvement, the Brevard County School Board was able to realize the positive impact of FIRST. Since then, the Brevard County School’s Superintendent, Dr. DiPatri set the goal of having a FRC Team in every High School in Brevard County, as well as an FLL Team in every elementary school. To facilitate this goal, the new superintendent, Dr. Binggeli, has allocated funds for every active team.
