The Future Starts Here!

FIRST Robotics Competition Team “Biohazard” 4050 is the high-school division of the Franklin County 4-H Robotics Club. Since 2012, Team 4050 has provided local students with the opportunity to participate in the FIRST Robotics Competition program. In the 2015-2016 season, Team 4050 was host to over 25 students, from 3 states, guided by over a dozen mentors. The focal point of Team 4050’s existence is participation in FIRST Robotics Competition. Each year, members and mentors work together to design and build a unique robot. In January, FIRST releases the annual “Game” that they must design their robot to participate in. To add to the challenge, they are given only 6 weeks to complete the robot. In the ensuing months, they attend two regional competitions, where they compete against 50+ other Teams, each with their own unique robot. Teams who win a regional are given the opportunity to attend a Championship event, where they compete for best in the world. In 2015, the FRC Team won the Chesapeake Regional competition and had the opportunity to go to the World Championship, a huge milestone and a major accomplishment.



Reaching out and interacting with the community...

...brings awareness to the many opportunities 4-H and FIRST robotics has to offer.

Our growing team enjoys the many opportunities that 4-H and local businesses have given us to talk about what we love to do. Building robots and being a part of Biohazard Team 4050. It's more than STEM!
