About

We are an award-winning FIRST robotics team from NYC, Team 1155.

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.
