What is TechBrick?

TechBrick, formed in early 2003, is an independent robotics and STEM education club for home-schooled, public, and private school students in Harford, Baltimore, and Cecil counties. We have more than 100 active registrations with weekly meetings of children and parents (who are encouraged to stay and participate). Your teams have participated in numerous championships both regionally and at World’s.

Why this program is critical to your child’s future: The club runs under a program called FIRST, founded in 1989 by Dean Kamen (of Segway Scooter fame) and Woodie Flowers from MIT. Their goal was to create a program in which young students, with a strong interest in technology and engineering, could get the same type of encouragement that students get in organized sports. It is these types of programs that will provide our future engineers.

There are no prerequisites. We are looking for students, ages 5 through HS Seniors, eager to learn engineering at all levels, willing to focus on a very complex task, and engage in building a world-class robot and team. Our facility now features 3D printers, computer aided design machines, and range of related tools and technology. No previous skills or training are required.

The FIRST program and competitions provide one of the best platforms for young people to get excited about the challenges and rewards of engineering: They are pushed to the limit on every level: project management, design, research, testing, strategic- planning, and more. We expect to look back four or five years from now and see many of our early participants in the workplace providing the innovative solutions we need to maintain our competitive edge.
