Viper Nation Academic Booster supports FIRST® LEGO® League, a robotics program for the elementary, middle and high school levels. Boasting FLL and FTC teams that consistently advance to World Championships, many Viper Nation teams are FIRST award winners and finalists. In 2017, Vandegrift High School announced their rookie FRC team and hosted 24 teams from as far away as Mississippi, for the 7th Annual Texas Robotic Roundup. For additional information about the ViperBots program at Vandegrift High School, please visit the ViperBot website.

VNAB annual FLL Scrimmage: Robotics students came together at our annual Robotics Scrimmage at Laura Bush Elementary on November 11, 2018, in preparation for this year’s FLL tournaments. We offer a special thank you to our volunteers and parents who made this event possible! 

Viper Nation Academic Booster supports FIRST® LEGO® League, a robotics program for the elementary, middle and high school levels. Boasting FIRST® LEGO® League and FIRST® Tech Challenge teams, which consistently advance to World Championships, VNAB has been a long-time supporter of impactful STEM programming that is first-in-class.
Adult Volunteers: Student interest is growing and not all schools have adult volunteers. Technical experience is not required; only the willingness to lead a group of eager students. If you are interested in mentoring a team, please contact the Executive Director at, or contact your school’s principal.


VNAB wishes to thank all of the adult parent and teacher mentors and coaches who facilitate school meeting space and generously provide their leadership. Viper Nation robotics would not happen without you!

The FLL Robotics introduces younger students to real-world engineering challenges by building LEGO-based robots.






It’s way more than building robots.
FIRST Tech Challenge teams (10+ members, grades 7-12) are challenged to design,
build, program, and operate robots to compete in a head-to-head challenge in an alliance format.
