Introduction
Livingston Robotics Club (LRC) is a robotics community for K-12 based in Livingston, New Jersey, USA. It is a part of the Healthy Community Healthy Youth of Livingston (HCHY), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

LRC was created and is operated on a purely voluntary basis by parents and mentors passionate about our mission, that is to provide a community-based, experience-sharing network to introduce youth in Livingston and vicinity to robotics, STEM, and real-life scientific research. Club membership is open to all children and teams in the neighboring communities.

LRC was founded in August 2007 by team Landroids. Within 10 years, the Club has grown tremendously to scores of robotics teams from a dozen neighbouring townships that accommodate hundreds of K-12 kids participating in several world-wide competitions. LRC teams have won many international, national, and state-level awards, as well as achieving high-finishing results in many competitions. Please see the Awards page for a comprehensive list.

Mission Statement

Livingston Robotics Club was organized in 2007 (officially incorporated in 2010). Its purposes and missions are:

To create a town-wide, community-based organization to introduce and educate K-12 youth in Livingston and its surrounding area within the state of New Jersey about robotics design, real-life science and engineering and related activities and studies, and provide them the opportunity to display their education and talents by participating in competitive and demonstrative events involving robotics.

To increase youth interests in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) in students by engaging them in project-based programs organized by networks of volunteer mentors and educators, to build these academic skills, encourage innovative
and out-of-the-box thinking, and foster well-rounded life learning skills such as self-confidence, time management, communication, teamwork and leadership. To provide a network of support between mentors, coaches, parents, teachers and
