About Team 422
We are FRC Team 422, the Mech Tech Dragons, located at Maggie L. Walker Governor's School for Government and International Studies, consisting of 55 members, almost 10% of the student body. Since our founding in 1999, we have built a competition robot as a part of FIRST Robotics, along with over 3,000 other FRC teams around the world. Our team uses a Triple A program to Advance, Advise, and Advocate for FIRST and STEM education in our school and community. We provide team members and alumni opportunities to get involved in FIRST year-round with STEM projects and community outreach endeavors. We are able to effectively fundraise, coordinate volunteer opportunities, and introduce people to the joys of STEM through FIRST robotics by integrating our humanities-focused student body into our STEM-oriented team. We advance STEM through community and school demonstrations, advise other FIRST teams to be the best that they can be, and advocate for STEM education on a state and national level. Our team strives to embody the spirit of FIRST in everything that we do, keeping our team members inspired and using our own passions to inspire others.
