About MORT


The Mount Olive Robotics Team was established in the fall 1996, by former teacher Bill McGowan, and is one of the largest clubs at MOHS with the active involvement of over 130 students, MOHS teachers, college professors, adult technicians, alumni and parents. We enjoy and benefit from the support of our local businesses and the County College of Morris. Student enrollment in the robotics engineering courses at MOHS continues to grow due to the efforts of MORT.

In 2013, we established a second team, MORT Beta, FRC 193, as a new junior varsity team.

Our mission is to challenge ourselves to stretch the boundaries of our imagination, inspire innovation, and foster critical life-skills including self-confidence, communication and leadership.
