Biohazard 4050 is a FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) and 4-H team. Our rookie year was 2012. We are located in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. We currently have over 30 members and over 10 mentors.
Through FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) and 4-H, STEM-based programs, high-schoolers have the opportunity to gain useful 21st century life skills. We have students ranging from ages 13-18.
Every build season, (January-February) we build a robot up to 125 lbs. within 6 weeks to compete in various competitions. In competition, there are typically around 50 teams, each competing with their own unique robot. Competitions are held throughout the world, but we typically compete along the east coast.
During the off-season, we like to demo and participate in various local outreach events.
