This page includes the history of the Peachtree Ridge robotics club (obviously).

In 2004, Brandon Adams founded the robotics team along with Diane Cass. Mrs. Cass had traveled from Oklahoma where she had been on a previous FIRST team. In conjunction with Brandon, his parents, and Mrs. Cass began to lay the foundation for a FIRST team. Somewhere along the line Paul Burrell came to help improve the robot. Gwen Albers came after Paul to point out that the robot needed spirit.
In 2004, Team 1261 was registered as "B3 - Break, Build, Believe". The name "Robo Lions" was the first name suggested by Gwen Albers and a few other members. Although they thought the name was "cute", the guys on the team quickly voted the name down.
The name Robo Lions was later suggested by Kanav Jain to be the permanent team name.
