The Bronx Science Sciborgs represents the co-ed robotics team from one of the top public high schools in the city. With approximately 50 members on the team, who are subdivided into different departments, we are comprised of some of the brightest and the best of our school. Every member on the team shows a strong dedication and passion for what they do, whether it's within programming, construction or public relations. Each year, the Sciborgs design and build a robot in about six weeks for the FIRST robotics competition. However, we are not just a team about excelling in our craft or winning a competition, but also expanding our knowledge and carrying it on to others. Almost every member on the team starts out with little to no experience in their field. It is the team's goal to pass on the skills/knowledge of the veterans members to rookies who have a passion to learn, in hopes of shaping them into an educated and experienced engineer or programmer. We collaborate together in a multitude of ways to both learn and teach robotic technology to each other as well as to the community at large. We are here to build something big. We're here to create something magnificent. We're here to be a part of the force that is transforming the world. Join us as we head into competition with heart, spirit and determination.

It is the final week before the competition at the Javits center, and everyone is finding it hard to contain their excitement. While the competition is closing in, the work is far from over, and will extend right through the competition. The construction department was completing the final tasks left in the last stretch before[…]
The final days of build season have finally come. All of the preparation and hard work focused on the robot were reflected in the finalizations that were completed. On top of that, the 22nd was the last day to work on the robot until the competition starts. This is because Stop Build Day had arrived,[…]
The Sciborgs entered the final stretch, the sixth week, of the build season and steadfastly continued their progress on the robot. Initially, the team members were instructed to work at such a pace that they could finish everything in the first five weeks, but they needed some extra time to polish their final product. All[…]
As the build season nears its end, the SciBorgs are reaching the final stages of their robot. Students in both departments are working hard to finish making the robot before the deadline. Once the deadline hits, they will no longer be able to work on their robot until the week of the competition, so every[…]
With the midyears week finally passing, the robotics team is working at its maximum. As the construction team finishes building some of the obstacles and the launcher, the programming team perfects its code. During this week, the construction department was tasked with testing old parts, and making sure that the parts are still able to[…]
This week will be especially slow and taxing on the members of the robotics team because they must maintain progress on the robot and build season and study for their exam-packed midyears. The construction department started off week 3 of build season by continuing work on the chassis for the official robot. Members finished building[…]
As week two of the build season comes to an end, the departments have been doing a lot of hard work. Much progress has been made since last week, and they are not done yet. The construction team has been working diligently on the robot, fixing up mistakes with prototypes and trying to setup the[…]
After the three day break, the robotics team is refreshed and ready to work. With the completion of the prototype design for the robot, members from all departments have been given tasks to complete and have made immense progress so far. The construction department designated jobs to different groups of rookies and veterans to continue[…]
In the final day for the first week of build season, amazing progress was made. Multiple prototypes were made, with the shooter prototype not only completed and working, but exceeding expectations as well. On top of that, the robot design itself was finished and things were extremely efficient for only five days worth of work. The construction group was in the[…]
During day four of the first week of build season, both the construction and programming team were working to design the robot to work well in the landscape that will be given in the challenge. Things are going well, and for every mistake that is made, members are able to come up with multiple solutions[…]
