SOMERVILLE HIGH SCHOOL ROBOTICS
Team 102 GearheadsOur Mission Statement
We are proud to say that at Somerville High School, we do not have a robotics team. Instead, we have a team of dreamers, idealists, and innovators of the future. And someday, these dreamers, idealists, and innovators will work to overcome some of the world's greatest challenges. We use FIRST® Robotics Competition as the bridge to our future, inspiring today's generations as well as the ones yet to come. For now, however, it is with the greatest pleasure that we, the GEARHEADS, welcome you to join Team 102 on our journey through the past, present, and future.
Sincerely, Mr. George Walter Mellors II
