About Us

The Firehawk Robotics FRC team was founded for the 2016 FRC season to fill a gap in the STEM learning experience for Shalhevet junior and seniors, as well as teach leadership and business skills to those students.

Our school is a progressive coeducational Modern Orthodox Jewish high school of about 260 students in Los Angeles, California. Within the Jewish educational world, Shalhevet is known for its pioneering co-educational approach to both regular and traditional jewish studies, empowering young women (and young men) for future learning and leadership. Students in the freshman and sophomore years participate in a STEM program, Center for Initiatives in Jewish Education (CIJE) that focuses on Arduino based projects. However, beyond these two years, and for older students, there is no extracurricular STEM program.


Robotics is so fun!!!
