FIRST is a robotics competition founded by inventor Dean Kamen. FIRST TM, an acronym for “For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology,” is an international phenomenon, which pairs high schools with corporate engineering sponsors to build a robot which will compete in a sport-like event. The goal of the FIRST TM program is to give students hands-on experience working with real engineers, so that engineers and scientists are seen as role models in the same way professional athletes are.
to help the students in our community achieve their dreams and become future engineers, programmers, and technicians.
Team 907 (East York Cybernetics) is a FIRST Robotics team created in 2002. Our aim is to enrich the STEM education of students in the East York community. We are a team of around 10 students with many more mentors led by one teacher, Mr. Perivolaris. We build robots yearly to compete in FRC competitions against hundreds of other robots. In 2018 we made it to provincial championships with our robot, "Phoenix".
