Record Robotics: 2016 to Now
In 2020, Record Robotics competed in one district competition. It was the NE District SE Mass Event
during the weekend of March 7th. You can click the link to view Team 6731 and the results.
This is their fourth year participating in the FRC.

In 2019, Record Robotics competed in two district competitions. First, the NE District SE Mass Event during the weekend of March 9th. Next, they participated in the NE District Central Mass Event. during the weekend of March 30th. You can click each link to view Team 6731 and their results. This is their third year participating in the FRC.
On Sunday August 11 2019, James McCubbin, Alexander Wong, Wyatt Harris, Anna Guo, Gavin Rohrer and Rebecca Combs pitched before Nobel Laureate Sir James Fraser Stoddart to solicit financial support for this coming robotics season. Through Professor Stoddart’s incredible generosity, we secured a $10,000 donation to help us with competition fees, parts, tools, transportation and building space. We are greatly indebted to Fiona McCubbin and the rest of our mentors for organizing this opportunity.
The mission of Record Robotics is to foster a rich STEM-based community. They aim to have members develop life skills such as communication, leadership, being a team player and facing challenges. Their main goal is to help students gain experience in fields that will guide them to their future.
The team began in 2016 by two seniors in the Belmont High School Engineering Club. They created BHS Record Robotics, and FRC Team 6731. Along with ten other members, they put their passion to work. In 2017, the team won the NE District Rhode Island Event and Rookie All Star Award. Record Robotics has been competing in the FIRST competitions ever since.
The 2017-2018 season has been successful both in competition and community support. The team came in 2nd place during their NE District Reading Event (image on homepage). On March 27-29, members went to three local elementary schools where they introduced teamwork and STEM to fourth graders. On June 9, they hosted an event at the Belmont Public Library to introduce FIRST and robotics across all ages.

In February of 2019, the team hosted a Robot Reveal Party at Winn Brook Elementary. The entire Belmont community was invited for an evening of fun, engineering activities and robotics.
On March 15 they held a hypnosis fundraising event at the local high school.
On May 18 the team ran a table at Belmont Town Day, an annual event for people to share their goods, causes, and clubs with the community. The FIRST Robotics team was lucky enough to host a booth and show off their robot. It gave little kids a chance to learn about activities and was a great way to find parents interested in mentorship.
Later into May, the team also participated in their annual outreach event at local elementary schools Butler and Wellington. Members introduced fourth graders to STEM and the engineering and design process through drawing activities and watching the team robot in action.
