About The Fe Maidens

The Fe (“Iron”) Maidens is the Bronx High School of Science’s all-girls robotics team. As a team, we engineer and build robots to compete in competitions held by FIRST Robotics, a global organization for young people interested in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Our team is composed of an Engineering, Programming, Electronics, and Marketing department. The Engineering department is responsible for designing, CADing, and constructing the physical parts of the robot. The Programming department is responsible for developing code and programming our robot to perform during autonomous and teleoperation periods of competition. The Electronics department is responsible for the wiring, control systems, and pneumatics of our robot. As an all-girls robotics team, we are looking for female mentors who have expertise in any of these areas and is willing to join an enthusiastic and motivated community dedicated to empowering the next generation of women in STEM.
