FIRST Robotics Team 1529 the CyberCards 2020-21 Application
The FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Competition team 1529, The CyberCards, strives to create an environment that fosters interest and excitement for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) careers by teaching team members the technical skills needed for success in future STEM careers.
