Welcome to Leland Robotics!
The Leland Robotics Team, Quixilver 604, is a
veteran robotics team located in the center of the Silicon Valley:
San Jose, California. Named after the local Quicksilver mercury
mines, the team has participated in the
FIRST (For Inspiration and
Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition (FRC) every year since 2005. The team has won numerous
awards, including the prestigious
Regional Chairman's Award.
Team 604 enables over 75 Leland High School
students to have the opportunity to apply formal education to real-life
challenges which not only excites them, but also guides them toward a
promising future in the field of engineering.
Mechanical matters are not Quixilver's only
priority; the team has also advocated outreach both in the community
and internationally in order to spread the word about the
