We are Team 422
To provide students with a real world STEM experience and promote interest in engineering
and mathematics within our school and community.
Based in Richmond, Virginia, we are FIRST Robotics Competition Team 422: The Mech Tech Dragons from
Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School. Since our founding in 1999, we have served as a major Science,
Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) outlet in our high school and local community, where
students on and off the team can explore meaningful opportunities in STEM. Beyond working to build a
competitive robot and participating in competitions, the Mech Tech Dragons actively seek out ways to
Advance, Advise, and Advocate our own love of robots to our local community through hosting events,
demonstrating our robot, volunteering, and mentoring other teams.
