Prospect Mountain High School FIRST Robotics mission is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders. By engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering and technology skills, it inspires innovation that fosters well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership, not only to our members, but also to our community.

Founded in 1999 at Alton Central School, Team 319 Big Bad Bob is one of the longest standing FIRST Robotics teams in the nation. Throughout the years, the team has traveled to regionals as far as Texas in 2004 as well as competed in countless local events. For many years, the team remained a small effective organization led by Senior Mentor, Brian Hikel. In recent years, he has been joined by other mentors from the school and community as well as by several key alumni. Concurrent with the addition of these mentors and alumni, the team has achieved success on the field and an increased participation from the student body.

Some of that tremendous success has been shown by traveling to World Championships in year 2016, making it to semifinals and competing against some of the best robots in the world. Success was also seen in the 2017 season where the team won three off-season events and a Judge’s Award for the very first time in team’s history.

Our team qualified for the FIRST Robotics World Championships at the Central New York Regional event in Utica, NY in the very beginning of the 2018 season. 

The FIRST World Championship of the 2018 season will be held April 25-29 in Detroit MI.  In order to represent our state and community, we need your help.  Your tax-deductable contributions will allow this dedicated, hard working group of high school students pay for our hotel stay, transportation, and travel expenses for this meaningful trip!

Our success in 2018 will be a result of community support. We would like to thank you in advance for your contribution to the Prospect Mountain High School FIRST Robotics Team- 319: Big Bad Bob.
