Club members join one or more project groups depending on their interests. In many projects, Byte by Byte members work side-by-side with members from other clubs, sharing mentors and working together in multi-club teams and groups.
Byte by Byte runs robotics teams in partnership with FIRST Robotics. Team size is limited according to FIRST rules, so robotics teams are first come, first serve, with preference given to continuing members.
Ages 5-13: FIRST Lego League teams meet Wednesdays at 6pm in the Machias area of Snohomish (both teams meet in the same location).
Ages 5-8: FIRST Lego League Explore teams meet from 6:00-7:30pm starting in October. Teams exhibit their project in the spring.
Ages 9-13: FIRST Lego League Challenge teams from 6pm-8pm starting in September. Teams attend an FLL competition in December. Post-competition activities throughout the spring build skills for next season.
Ages 13-18: Please contact us ASAP if you're intersted in robotics for this age group! FIRST Tech Challenge (ages 13+) and FIRST Robotics Challenge (ages 14+) teams are dependent upon interest. Teams typcially meet Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday during build season, and weekly after the final competition.
FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) builds from September through December, provided at least 6 youth register.
FIRST Robotics Challenge (FRC) builts from January thgrough April, provided at least 12 youth register.
If we don't have enough youth to run a competitive team, builds may be non-competitive.
Computer Science with Girls Who Code

This group will meet two times per month Mondays at 5:30pm on Zoom. Meetings start in October.
Modeling with Minecraft
Our members work cooperatively to create large group builds on our 4-H Minecraft server. Have fun with Minecraft and build amazing things while learning about project management, server administration, and more.
The group is open to all youth ages 5-19 and meets Fridays at 6:30pm on Zoom.
From April 2020 through May 2021, our members worked on a scale model of the Evergreen State Fairgrounds. The realistic model was based on photos, maps, and measurements. Check out our youth-produced May, 2021 Minecraft group presentation on YouTube!
In the 2021-2022 year, youth began a scale model of the National Mall in Washington, D. C.
Aviation/Aerospace & Sewing Projects
Activities for these projects are TBD for 2022-2023. Please inquire if you're interested in learning more!
