Who are we?
We are the IslandBots, a robotics team on Long Island in the Stony Brook, NY area. We are in our eighth year of competing in the FIRST Tech Challenge robotics competition. In addition to having a successful team, our alumni have gone on to the world’s top universities to study STEM. These universities include Caltech, MIT, University College (London), UPenn, Cornell, Georgia Tech, Berkeley, and Harvard.
The team is not affiliated to any single school. Our mentor is Prof. Alexander Kirillov of Stony Brook University. Our goal is to spread STEM education especially robotics on Long Island and of course to win!
We currently have 11 members – and several alumni, who visit us whenever they come home on vacation. Current team members:
