Our team name is SWAT 771, which stands for St. Mildred’s Women Advancing Technology. We are an all girls robotics team from St. Mildred’s Lightbourn School. We have been competing in the FIRST Robotics Competition since our rookie season in 2002.
We are one of the first, in a handful, of all girls’ FRC teams in the world and the first Canadian all girls’ team. We are also the very first all female team to be awarded the prestigious Regional Chairman’s Award, proving that we are a leader in science and technology and strongly believe in the message of FIRST.
We celebrate achievements of women in science and technology through FRC, FIRST‘s program for high school students. This year, we have students from grades 8-12 who play an active role on the robotics team.
