BirchBots, Team 5421, is a group of motivated high school students (grades 9-12) and 3 mentors from the Birch Wathen Lenox School in Manhattan, New York. Our FRC Robotics Team is made up of 3 subgroups — build, operations, and controls, and within each group are student leaders, and specific responsibilities. To cultivate a dynamic and collaborative environment where students explore, design, and build, we work collaboratively and impact our community by doing so both philanthropically and educationally. Through hands-on experiences, mentorship, giving back to our community and a commitment to continuous learning, we aim to continue the growth and prosperity of our team. We are dedicated to upholding a creative, inclusive and leadership-building environment, creating strong leaders on our team.
