Saint Joseph Prep's Robotics team, the 1965 Firebirds, is one of the most popular clubs on campus.
The Robotics team offers students an opportunity to gain hands-on experience with both hard skills such as engineering and coding, and 21st century skills such as collaboration, problem-solving, and communication.
FIRST Robotics Competitions
Each year, the Robotics team works together to build a robot to compete in FIRST Robotics competitions. Students choose an area of focus, including coding, electrical engineering, and mechanical engineering.
The Robotics team works side-by-side with real-world engineers from organizations including Raytheon, Analog Devices, and Akamai. Students receive technical training and mentorship from experienced professionals.
