What is Ironclad?


Bradley-Bourbonnais Community High School’s (BBCHS) Robotics Team, Team Ironclad started to take shape in April 2014. The intended purpose of this program is to advance high school students’ skillsets in science, technology, engineering and math as well as art (STEAM). The Team will contribute these skills and outstanding talents to further advance the successes of our community. With the community’s support, Team Ironclad, comprised of unique and diverse students harboring a passion for STEAM, will be able to compete successfully at competitions while gaining valuable experience and skills that will last a lifetime.
