FRC Team 4020
We are Cyber Tribe, also known as FIRST® Robotics Competition Team 4020. FIRST is an acronym, "For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology", and is a worldwide nonprofit organization founded in 1992 that promotes STEM to young people. As stated on the FIRST website, the FIRST Robotics Competition "combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. We call FIRST Robotics Competition the ultimate sport for the mind. High-school student participants call it the hardest fun you’ll ever have.”

What does it mean to be part of cyber tribe?
Cyber Tribe is comprised of three sub-teams:
Our build team is responsible for designing and building our robot. We build mostly with metal using computer-controlled tools, manual power tools, hand tools and 3D printing. We design with CAD. Electronics and electrical wiring is a big part of build.
Our programming sub-team brings the robot to life! We use the Java programming language to convert human driver inputs, sensor/camera inputs, or autonomous sequences into actions of all the robot mechanisms to play the season's game.
Our admin team is responsible for everything other than build or programming needed to make us successful. This includes strategy, marketing, media, fundraising, outreach, social media, and more. They ensure that the team works cooperatively and efficiently.
