Our Mission:

The SciBorgs is a co-ed robotics team based in the Bronx High School of Science. Since the team’s inception in 2002 with only 8 members, the SciBorgs seek to spread STEM education in underprivileged communities through endless hours of volunteer work and the institution of new robotics teams. In recent years, the team has more than 45 members who dedicate their spare time to spread STEM to their peers and children in the Bronx. Team members carry the values of diligence and teamwork with them and inspire students in their community.

History:

The SciBorgs are a co-ed robotics team located at The Bronx High School of Science, one of the most prestigious schools. The team began in 2002 with only eight students. In 19 years, we have since grown exponentially in size to 46 students this year with over 110 SciBorg alumni. Additionally, in 2009 the SciBorgs supported the creation of the FeMaidens, the first all-girls team in New York.
