A STEM-based program made up of students at East Mecklenburg High School finding new ways to build skills in engineering, programming, and business. Team Avian's goal is to prepare the students at East for the future. Team Avian implements CAD, Java, and other engineering applications to create our robots, while also promoting and fundraising to raise funds for the resources we need.
To introduce our members and community to the world of robotics using technology, teamwork, communication, and creativity while respecting ourselves, others, and our surroundings.
What is FIRST Robotics?
Combining 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.”
Under strict rules, limited time, and resources, teams of students are challenged to raise funds, design a team "brand," hone teamwork skills, and build and program industrial-size robots to play a difficult field game against like-minded competitors. It’s as close to real-world engineering as a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team. Each season ends with an exciting FIRST Championship.
