Robotics Within Bound Brook & South Bound Brook, NJ
Every year since 1997, Bound Brook High School has participated in the FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC). The challenge changes each year, but all teams worldwide receive the challenge, a kit of parts, and a rule book on the same day in January. The team then has just six weeks to build a competition-ready robot. Read about this year's challenge. The team also does numerous outreach events each year throughout the community. In efforts to excite students in the younger grades of Bound Brook and South Bound Brook about Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (S.T.E.A.M.), our team aims to create and mentor age appropriate FIRST teams at every school in both districts following the FIRST Progression of Programs.
