FIRST Robotics Team 1557 (12 Volt Bolt) is an all-inclusive high school robotics team located at 211 N. Grove Street in downtown Eustis, Florida. We have members from Lake, Putnam, Orange, Seminole and Volusia County schools, as well as homeschooled students.

We have been an FRC team since 2004.  12 Volt Bolt is made up of several sub-teams, including mechanical, electrical, programming, website management, awards, marketing, public relations, and community outreach. In addition to building robots, we also have a strong community presence. 12 Volt Bolt participates in events such as the Mt. Dora Fourth of July Parade, the Triangle Elementary Science Fair, Robotics Discovery Day at the Eustis Library, and the Eustis Street Fest. The team is also active in volunteering for local charities.
