The Markham FireBirds do not exist solely to build robots. There is so much more to a FIRST Robotics Team than just that. We strive every day to bring the ideas of STEAM to its members and the communities in Markham. Through the hands-on experience of building robots, to community outreach events, and the thrill of competition, we stand to promote the importance and teach the fundamentals of STEAM to everyone we encounter.
Unlike many other robotics teams, we do not let borders stand in our way. While we are based out of Markham, we extend our reach to neighbouring municipalities. Currently, we have members from Stouffville and Richmond Hill, where not every student has access to robotics. FRC 7902 will welcome any high school student who is enthusiastic about STEAM or business and is willing to put in a little effort.
