Rooted in Community

Ward Melville High School is a second home to students in Three Village School District. From hosting over 25 clubs to children’s programs during school breaks, Ward Melville has given each of our members a commitment to academics and learning. It’s here that our team hit the ground running, funneled by our school’s commitment to STEM education. Our school mascot, the Patriot, inspired us to become the “Iron Patriots” of competitive robotics.

Teachers and learners

Our club has collectively put thousands of hours into studying and education. Our club has put countless hours into our community. From getting elementary students excited about robotics at our STEM Night, to expanding the horizons of our community through hosting coding classes at our local library; we make sure the community learns just as much as our teammates. 

As learners, studying and research comes first. We’re dedicated to success, bringing in company associates from Zebra and professors from Stony Brook University to help us learn.
