Who are we?
The Gearheadz is an after-school program where LHS students get hands-on experience with all aspects of building a robot. Team members work together with professionals from industry to dream up, design, build, test, and drive a robot that they then compete with and against high school teams as part of the world-renown FIRST program. The program’s main season begins in early January and runs through March when the team competes in regional competitions against teams from as far away as Canada, Mexico and even Australia. The team is hosted by Lawrence High School, in Lawrence, Massachusetts. Previous experience in robotics is not required – anyone with an interest in learning new things, and being a part of a team is welcome.
