In 2009 the Jamaica College Old Boys Association of New york  began to address Jamaica’s deficiency in science education with even more applied innovation. We got JC involved in Robotics Competitions run by US FIRST. This was done after we noted the tremendous excitement for science that robotics generated among students. We wanted this excitement for science to migrate to JC and Jamaica. Board Chairman Hon. Danny Williams and Principal Ruel Reid were both receptive to the idea of a JC Robotics Club. That’s how organized robotics in Jamaica started. 

10 amazing years later, 5 World Championship appearances, 16 International Awards, thousands of students engaged and millions inspired, the Jamaica College Robotics has made our school and country proud.

We are currently in the advanced stages of making robotics available to high schools island-wide via a Jamaica Robotics Champs. The Robotics Champs will enable 21st century skills and innovation among our students. When widely deployed, its impact will be transformative for students and our education system.
