“We are proud to say that at Somerville High School, we do not have a robotics team. Instead, we have a team of dreamers, idealists, and innovators of the future. And someday, these dreamers, idealists, and innovators will work to overcome some of the world’s greatest challenges. We use FIRST® Robotics Competition as the bridge to our future, inspiring today’s generations as well as the ones yet to come. For now, however, it is with the greatest pleasure that we, the GEARHEADS, welcome you to join Team 102 on our journey through the past, present, and future.” -Mr. George Mellors; Former Adviser

The Gearheads was founded in 1998 in Somerville NJ and has had a successful 21 years of competitions. We have received awards such as the FIRST Future Innovation Award, Judge’s Award, and the Founder’s Award in our years of competition (along with many other awards which can be found on the Awards page).
