Who We Are

In 2022, Students from the 2021-22 robotics team "Brainbots" decided to launch a new competitive team called "I.F. Robotics" also known as "I Forgot". We are a competitive robotics team located in Vancouver, Washington. (Contact us at info@ifrobotics.org.) 

The Name (explained)

Our name "I Forgot" came about as a joke. The idea is that during a competition the announcer will be listing the names of the people competing and when they get to our name, they will say "I Forgot". This makes everyone think that the announcer actually forgot what our team name is, so it ends up being funny. This name also has a deeper meaning, because everyone forgets and mistakes and that's okay.
