Welcome to the 2Train Robotics website!


We are a FIRST® Robotics Competition team based at Columbia University and comprised of students from both the School for Excellence in Morris Campus in the Bronx and students from Columbia Secondary School in Harlem.
Team 395 provides students opportunities to pursue their goals in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). This is made possible with our dedicated mentors and amazing sponsors.



Date: Saturday, January 7th, 2017 from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM

“Be part of the more than 3,400 teams in 2017 comprised of 85,000 students and their adult Mentors from around the world who will prepare to take flight in FIRST® STEAMWORKSSM.

FIRST® Robotics Competition is the ultimate Sport for the Mind,TM where imagination and innovation come together! By combining the excitement of sport and beauty of art with the rigors of science and technology, teams of high school students (ages 14 – 18/grades 9 – 12) are challenged to design a team “brand,” hone teamwork skills, and build and program robots to perform tasks against a field of competitors.

Teams work together and build, program and test robots with the guidance of adult Mentors. Teams then compete with their robots as family and friends cheer from the stands at more than 140 events worldwide – all leading up to the 2017 FIRST® Championships April 19 – 22 in Houston, TX and April 26 – 29 in St. Louis, MO.” (http://www.firstinspires.org/2017-frc-teaser)
