Who are the Seamonsters?

The Seamonsters are FRC Team #2605 and are 25+ members strong. Our mission is to create an environment within the team that is as enriching as it is gratifying, where every student is presented with equal opportunities to pursue their interests in the applications of STEM.

 

The Seamonsters compete against schools of all sizes, including some of whom have many more resources at their disposal. Our mentors provide supervision and some high-level guidance, but 100% of the design, construction, and programming of the robot is performed at our school, by the students.

 

We also have FTC Teams as well as VEX Teams participating at our high schools and in within our district.

History and Folklore

Our team was founded in 2008 with the creative name of “Sehome Robotics Team.” From the very beginning, we emphasized the idea that students learn best from hands-on involvement and by enjoying themselves at the same time. In 2008, we won the Highest Seeded Rookie Award by becoming 8th Alliance Captain at the Portland Regional.

 

In 2010, we changed our name to the Sehome Seamonsters, and adopted our mascot, Queequeg. The story goes that a few robotics members were walking along the beach when they discovered a washed-up baby squid. After taking him back to the shop, it demonstrated such a profuse interest in science and engineering, that we decided to keep him around.

In 2016 we changed our name again - dropping the "Sehome" portion of our name and referring to ourselves simply as the Seamonsters. We did this in recognition of students who joined our team from other district high schools. We pride ourselves on representing students from the entire Bellingham School District, not just Sehome High School.
