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.

2021-22 Game Theme

Despite all of the challenges presented by the global pandemic, FIRST® competitions are back in person! We are supporting our FTC teams in their hybrid competition model, and we volunteered at multiple FLL events. We are ecstatic to be back, putting our Gracious Professionalism and Coopertition to work being FIRST® Game Changers!

Rapid React

FIRST® Robotics Teams are tasked with designing, constructing, testing, and running a new robot each season. This year's game introduces new limitations and goals for teams to adapt to. Some key strategic elements of the game are robots being limited on how many game pieces they my possess (cargo), and field elements involving a large shared center goal (hub) and two independent climbing structures (hangar) similar to monkey bars. Additionally, Rapid React adds a human element during the Autonomous period! With these new game aspects, teams will be challenged to expand on existing skills and build brand new ones.


Camp Force

Robotics Summer Program

1073's Camp Force is an in-person, week-long robotics day camp for students aged 12-14 who are Brookline or Hollis, NH residents. Designed to be a fun, Covid-19 safe competition, students will be split into groups of four each led by a member of Team 1073 to learn basic skills needed in the FIRST® Robotics Program. Students do not need any prior robotics experience to register! The cost of the camp is $150.
