A public high school in Kingsport, Tennessee decided to open a new chapter their extra curricular activities. Eight dedicated, young students banded together and formed the Cyber Tribe Robotics Team. That year, they decided to join the FIRST community as Team 4020.

In 2018, Team 4020 attended both the Palmetto Regional and the Buckeye Regional. At the Palmetto Regional, they placed 10th, and at the Buckeye Regional, they placed 14th. Team 4020 also won the Industrial Design award for their 2017 robot, McRee.
