Robot Dolphins from Outer Space, Team 5199, is an FRC team that was started in October 2013 by a group of students at Dana Hills High School in Dana Point, California. The team was founded by Kobi Greenberg, Colton Franco, Ben Borovinsky, Jackson Watkins, Steven Perkins, Camille Perkins, and Kyle Watkins. With the incredible vision from Lead Mentor, Mr. Jeff Greenberg, the Robot Dolphins have now grown to over 60 students on campus.
It’s more than just robots, however. The team’s main philanthropic focus is the Boys and Girls Club of Capistrano Valley, where the team volunteers every Wednesday teaching robotics with Lego Build Kits to kids.
Through the hardwork of teaching the kids about Robotics at the Boys and Girls Club, Robot Dolphins were selected as the 2016 Outstanding Volunteer from the One OC Spirit of Volunteerism Awards 40th Anniversary.
Our mission is to establish and foster a culture of science, technology and engineering within our school and our community through competitive success in robotics.
Dana Hills High School is located in Dana Point, California. It is both a California Distinguished School and a National Blue Ribbon School.
