The Iron Eagles
Brentwood Academy's robotics program, founded in 2013, is regarded as one of the top competition robotics programs in the country. Since then, the Iron Eagles has grown to include more than 65 students and earned numerous state and World Championship titles. Brentwood Academy competition robotics tournaments are regarded as the gold standard by the REC Foundation. The Iron Eagles are a very active member of the community, supporting other new robotics programs and connecting with leaders in the tech industry.
The VEX Robotics Competition, presented by the Robotics Education & Competition Foundation, is the largest and fastest growing middle school and high school robotics program globally with more than 20,000 teams from 50 countries playing in over 1,700 competitions worldwide. Each year, an exciting engineering challenge is presented in the form of a game. Students, with guidance from their teachers and mentors, build innovative robots and compete year-round.

The Iron Eagles team is committed to helping others get involved with robotics and sharing our skills with others. Throughout the years we have mentored new robotics teams at other schools, hosted tournaments and workshops, trained and mentored volunteers and teachers from other schools so they could start their own programs, and participated in Nashville’s Mini Maker Faire, allowing other students and attendees to see what it’s like to drive a robot!
