About Us

Who are we?

We are the FIRST® Robotics Competition team of Normanhurst Boys High School, an academically selective public school. The team consists of 35 volunteer students from years 7 to 12.

Our team aims to become the premier FIRST® public school team, while simultaneously providing our students with valuable STEM and real world skills that will assist them in their later education and careers.

What is the FIRST® Robotics Competition?

The FIRST® Robotics Competition is a competition that aims to inspire students typically aged 14 to 18 in science, technology and engineering through competitive robotics.

Each year, a new game is announced, and teams are required to build a robot that fits this game; different functions will have to be performed with every game.

Our Achievements

We have been competing in the FIRST® Robotics Competition nearly since the creation of the Australian branch in 2012, and we have since attained several achievements. We were awarded with the Robot Design Award in 2015 and 2017, won Duel Down Under in 2019, were named runners-up for the Inspire Award in the Australian Regional in 2016, represented Australia in the Asia Pacific Invitational in 2017 and won the Rapid React #2 off-season competition in 2022.
