Engineering Notebook

Take a look at what we've done. We provide free and open models and code ranging from a virtual robot simulator to 3D models to make building easier.


We pride ourselves in advancing STEAM in our community. Take a look at our projects ranging from Junior Jellies to engineering fairs.

About Us

FIRST Tech Challenge Team 4654
Official meetings on Tuesdays in the Fabrication Lab.

The BBHS Robotics Team, the Jellyfish, is proud to present Junior Jellies, a 6 week long after-school program for BMPRSS 4th and 5th graders and middle school students. The team runs three different programs – Junior Jellies Engineering, Junior Jellies Robotics, and Junior Jellies Java. In Junior Jellies Engineering, 4th and 5th grade students work with materials provided to complete a challenge proposed by the instructors in order to help the students develop engineering, problem solving, and creativity skills from a younger age. Junior Jellies Robotics is also for 4th and 5th graders, and is modeled after the FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC), our own robotics league, in order to develop students’ abilities in teamwork, programming, engineering, and critical thinking skills. The Jellyfish also teach Junior Jellies Java, where the instructors teach middle school students to code in Java.
