We are not just about building robots. We are about building people. We are about building leaders. We are about building tomorrow.
Our mission is to affect a positive climate within our school and our community, that includes making others aware of and excited about the opportunities available in science, technology, engineering, math, language arts, and an understanding of the importance of engineers to the future of our nation and our world. Our further mission is to give team members practical experience in building 21st Century workplace skills such as critical and creative thinking, creativity, and teamwork skills. We also strive to give back to our community through service by every team member.
We are the FIRST Robotics Team 379 Robocats from Girard High School. Our team was established in 1999 by then principal Joseph Jeswald. Mr. Jeswald was the 2010 Woody Flowers award winner. We are also a founding member of the Northeast Ohio FIRST Robotics Alliance (NEOFRA).
In 20013 we won both the Queen City and Washington DC Regionals, as well as two robot quality awards. We are an eight-time Entrepreneurship Award winner, five time Spirit Award winner, four time Engineering Inspiration Award winner, and the 2004 Buckeye Regional Chairman’s Award winners and 2007 Buckeye Regional Champions, among many other awards.
