About Us

Team 116 is the Herndon High School robotics team. We are a member of FIRST: For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology. FIRST is an international, non-profit organization run by volunteers, with a mission to promote the study of science and technology. Specifically, we participate in the FRC (competition with more advanced robotics), FVC (competition using VEX robotics kits) as Team 519 and FTC (competition using the Lego NXT controller and metal parts), also as Team 519, leagues in FIRST. We also mentor an elementary school FLL (competition using the Lego Mindstorms® robotics kits) team, as well as do various outreach projects each year.

Where we’ve been

Team 116 was started in 1996 at South Lakes High School. Three years later in 1999, the team moved to Herndon High School and has been growing ever since. In the past we have done very well in the competitions and look forward to topping all of our past achievements this year!
