Burncoat Robotics is a group of robotics team in the Burncoat area of Worcester. It started with the FIRST Robotics Competition team, The Green Reapers, and has since grown to include FIRST LEGO League teams and multiple events.

Programs

Green Reapers

The Green Reapers were founded in the fall of 2005 to bring STEM education to Burncoat High School. Every year the team builds a 120 pound robot within the rules of the game designed by FIRST Robotics Competition in six weeks. They compete throughout New England and have competed in at the World Championships.

LEGO Reapers

The LEGO Reapers are a part of FIRST LEGO League. In the fall they build and program LEGO robots to accomplish tasks specific to the game of the year. They also work on a research project where they solve a real world problem. The teams compete at a local qualifier and if they make it, compete at the state championships.
