FIRST Robotics Team 5123
As avid participants of FIRST Robotics Competition for the fifth year, the Yonkers High School robotics team has been the driving force behind the spread of STEM throughout Greater New York City. Through intensive recruitment procedures, FRC Team 5123 has grown steadily as a diverse and dynamic team, bringing together the most dedicated and creative of students into a team that truly proves two, or thirty-seven, heads are always better than one.
With a new generation of students who have prepared long and hard for this competition both inside our robotics lab and out, the Mechadogs boast a 100% high school graduation rate, with the vast majority going on to pursue a bachelor’s degree in STEM fields. In the past, the Mechadogs have won the 2017 Engineering Inspiration Award at the New York Tech Valley Regional competition for their extensive work promoting STEM within the community including a free summer camp and regularly volunteering at the World Science Fair, and the 2016 Entrepreneurship Award for our business acumen.
