The Force Team, also known as Team 1073, is a high school FIRST® Robotics Competition team from Hollis, NH. Our base of operations is at Hollis-Brookline High School, where we assemble students from the towns of Hollis and Brookline.


The purpose of the FIRST® Robotics Competition Team at Hollis-Brookline High School is to inspire and prepare our students to become the leaders, innovators and technologically-literate citizens of tomorrow. We follow FIRST®’s vision of inspiring young people to pursue opportunities in science, technology, engineering and math by providing an accessible, innovative program that builds self-confidence, knowledge, professionalism and life skills.

Game Design Challenge

In the absence of a traditional game this year, FRC teams were challenged to create a concept for an FRC game they would like to play in the future. This challenge was left open-ended, with plenty of room for us to be creative. Our final product was a game concept titled "Shipwrecked". To create this game, we partnered with one of our sponsors, Tucker Engineering.

Thank You Community!
