About Host FRC Team 433 the FireBirds

PictureThe Firebirds joined FIRST Robotics in 2000  under the name M.I.N.T.- Mounties Interested in New Technology. After a mishap in which their robot caught fire during one of their first matches, their team rose from the ashes and renamed themselves the Firebirds.

The Firebirds are based out of Mount Saint Joseph Academy, an all girls school in Flourtown, PA. Team 433 was the second all girls FIRST Robotics team and is the longest running FIRST all girls team in the world. Their team vision is to develop confident, compassionate, and courageous young women who can and will achieve their dreams and improve the world. As an active part of the FIRST Robotics community, the Firebirds take the mission of FIRST Robotics to heart. Their team goals are:
1. To inspire their team and school community through FIRST
2. To serve as a role model to inspire other teams
3. To inspire their community through FIRST
4. To find new ways to spread the FIRST message of inspiration
5. To create inspired partnerships
6. To inspire involvement with FIRST through communication

Good luck to everyone this weekend.  We can’t wait to be there.
