Welcome To The 2TrainRobotics Website!


We are a FIRST robotics team based at Columbia University and comprised of students from both Morris High School in the Bronx and students from Columbia Secondary School (CSS) in Harlem.
Team 395 provides students opportunities to pursue their goals in the science and engineering field. This is made possible with our dedicated mentors and amazing sponsors.

2016 FIRST Robotics Competition Kickoff

Date: Saturday, January 9, 2016

Time: 10:30-11:30 AM (ET)

Location: Worldwide

FRC (FIRST Robotics Competition) Kickoff marks the beginning of the design and build season. Teams have the opportunity to meet at “local” Kickoffs to compare notes, get ideas, make friends, find mentoring teams, learn the game, pick up the Kit of Parts, and get geared up for the exciting competition season.



“In 2016, more than 3,000 teams comprised of 78,000+ students from around the world will compete for glory in FIRST STRONGHOLDSM. In just six weeks, they will build, program and test robots with the guidance of adult Mentors.

Dubbed a varsity Sport for the Mind™, FIRST Robotics Competition combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. It’s the only school sport where all members may turn pro if they choose. Teams of 10 or more high school students (ages 14-18/grades 9-12) are challenged to build and program a robot to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors, raise funds, design a team “brand,” hone teamwork skills. It’s as close to real-world business and engineering as a student can get.”
