FHRL Open House 2021

FHRL 2020-2021

This year's Robotics season was a challenging remote season. However, we were still able to host the following teams:
  •  FIRST Tech Challenge teams - Gear Masters (8365) and Mighty Mechanics (8721)
  •  FIRST LEGO League teams - Granny Group, Legendary Athleticbots, and Endorian Engineers
  •  CoderZ team
Our teams performed exceptionally well overall in this year's remote season, winning the NYC FTC Championship, NYC FLL Championship, and many other awards for our teams. Unfortunately, the World Championship was canceled this year due to the Pandemic, Luckily, our FLL Championship team, the Granny Group, was able to represent NYC to attend the FIRST LEGO League Virtual Open International Greece!

As a volunteer program, all our coaches are volunteer based. Typically, the coaches are adults who are interested in being more actively involved in the program. Coaches do not need to have previous experience. We will provide training and guidance to help you coach and manage your team. Remember, without coaches, we won't be able to have any teams. If you are interested in coaching, please sign up here.

Note: People accepted as coaches, can secure a seat for their kids on the team that they are coaching.
