Current Students

TechBrick, formed in early 2003, is an independent robotics and STEM education club for home-schooled, public, and private school students in Harford, Baltimore, and Cecil counties. We have more than 100 active registrations with weekly meetings of children and parents (who are encouraged to stay and participate). Our teams have participated in numerous championships both regionally and at Worlds.

In 2017-18 TechBrick has 80 enrolled students partcipating in FLLJr, FLL, FTC and FRC teams. We have students from more than 30 regional schools.

This Year's FRC Students

Jacob Keeler

Aberdeen High School SMA

"I am interested in this program because my friends told about how much fun it is. Also that i want to learn more about robotics and problem solving."

Joseph Mattson

Aberdeen High School SMA
"As part of the SMA, I have been exposed to lots of programming and robotics. I have developed a great interest in these things, especially the programming side of robotics. Also, many of my fellow students there have recommended the program to me."

Sophia Knap

Aberdeen High School SMA
"I am interested in FTC, because it has been fun for the past two years and very intuitive as well as educating. I would like to proceed this program."

Ry McClure

Patterson Mill

"I want to participate in a program that will allow me to work with programming and engineering in a group environment. In school, these opportunities don't arise often, and at home you don't get experience with a team."

Paul Merkel

Homeschool

"I am hoping to gain experience to use in a STEM related field, and learn about teamwork and leadership."

Erik Wikane

Harford Technical High School
"I would like to join FRC to get a feel for the work environment of professional engineers and how they carry out their work. Another benefit of this program would be the hands-on learning experience it provides as well as opportunities for the future."

TJ Mccartygibson

Homeschool
"I liked it last year. I want to do more programming."

Cole Force

Homeschool

"I have always been interested in engineering and computer science.  Robotics seems like the next logical step in gaining experience in these fields."

Kyle Truong

Aberdeen High School SMA

Ian Morrill

Aberdeen High School SMA

"I'd like to be able to further my programming skills alongside other kids that like programming as much as I do. I also would like to learn better building skills, so that I can apply that to building things with my Arduinos that I have at home."

Rebekah Knox

C. Milton Wright
"I want to learn more about robotics."

Adam Antar

Bel Air High School

"We're interested in this program because it seems to be well rounded, serious and it has a local chapter we can attend."
