The Souhegan High School FIRST Robotics Team no. 138 – known as “Entropy” – represents a group of students in grades 9 through 12 interested in the fields of engineering, math, and science. Souhegan High School, the parent institution, serves the towns of Amherst and Mont Vernon, New Hampshire. With the help of adult mentors and sponsors, the team builds a robot to compete in the yearly FIRST Robotics Competition.
The foremost goal of the SHS robotics team is to create an experience that encourages students to pursue exciting career opportunities in the science, mathematics, or engineering fields. Partnering with professional engineers & scientists, the team coaches and mentors provide positive role models and creates an environment to build self-confidence. Every student is exposed to important life skills such as commitment, leadership, problem solving, teamwork, and time management. All of our robots are student inspired and student built. Most importantly, everyone has fun!
