Team Spyder:

Team Spyder 1622 is Poway High School’s FIRST Robotics Team. We were founded in 2002. As a part of the FIRST Robotics organization, we fund raise and build a different robot every year for a new challenge. In addition to competing in the FIRST Robotics Competition, Team Spyder also participates in the national CyberPatriot competition and in the VEX Robotics competition.


FIRST Robotics:

FIRST (an acronym of, “For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology”), is an international organization of robotics teams. Since its founding in 1989 by Dean Kamen and Woodie Flowers, FIRST Robotics has grown to include competitions for students in high school, middle school, and elementary school. As the “varsity sport for the mind,” FIRST Robotics inspires students to be excited about science and engineering. Students involved in FIRST are 50% more likely to attend college than are students with similar backgrounds in math and science. In addition, participants are also eligible for over $14 million in FIRST Robotics scholarships.
