FIRST FRC® Team 2530, Inconceivable Robotics, is based in Rochester, Minnesota and "builds students who build robots".
We encourage the pursuit of learning through science, technology, revenue, engineering, aesthetics, and mathematics (STREAM). We promote Gracious Professionalism, student leadership, and teamwork in all aspects of our students’ lives. While Team 2530's students attend three rivaling high schools and two middle schools, we exemplify cooperation among our members. FRC® is one of the few extracurricular activities that transcends school boundaries and creates a unified team. All school colors and rivalries are set aside for Inconceivable Lime Green.
With an atmosphere of creativity and innovation, Team 2530 inspires future business leaders, engineers, graphic artists, and programmers through community involvement, spreading the message of FIRST®, and fostering meaningful connections with sponsors and adult volunteer mentors. Team 2530 operates with strong communication, which is crucial to successfully coordinate and organize year-round volunteer events and technical training.

Our team offers a variety of engaging options in the STEAM field. From graphics to machining, everyone has something they can do! Check out some things you can do!
As an FRC Team, we are tasked to build a robot within a 6 week time frame to compete with other robots.
Students on our team get crucial job experience in the STEAM field, like teamwork and problem solving skills.
We work with nonprofits and schools to create lasting impacts in the community.
We couldn't exist without our sponsors, and that's why we create meaningful connections with them.
To manage our workflow, we split into 4 different major sub-teams:
Branding, fundraising, sponsor relations, and media. The team also writes chairmans for an FRC award.
Designs the robot using Computer Aided Design (CAD), then uses that design to build the robot with power tools.
Develops and tests robot code and autonomous functions using Java to enhance the robot's capabilities.
Strategizes the best way to gain points by anylyzing previous years and other teams' strategy, then drives.

In the past, we, along with so many others, have had team-members and friends that have struggled with mental health issues. We wanted to create something to let those stuggling with mental health that they are not alone and that we care. This came in the form of a lime green ribbon which represents mental health awareness, just like a pink ribbon represents breast cancer awareness. We've created over 10,000 of these bows and we see them worn at events and at our local high schools.
Team 2530 also hosts a week long robotics summer camp in which students build and test a robot using
the Tetrix system. Similar to FRC, there is a themed challenge in which students must brainstorm their
robot's design and work with power tools to acheive this design.
You can sign up your 3rd-8th grader for Summer Camp! For more information, check out the most recent summer camp flyer or contact us.
We work with the Girl Scouts of America and Scouts BSA to teach their scouts STEAM-related skills and help them earn their robotics badges. Similar to our summer camp, we use TETRIX robotics kits and create a series of "games" for them to compete in.
