First Robotics Team 426


Our StorY

The FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) is a yearly event in which teams of high school students, teachers, and mentors (another word for work) to build a robot that plays a cooperative and challenging game. FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is an organization that inspires young people to be leaders of science and technology  by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering and technology skills that inspire innovation, and foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, leadership and community awareness.

ZACTF  is comprised of agents from over five schools located in the Bronx, New Hampshire, and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Our commanders (mentors) are located across the world.  Each of our schools individually lacks the resources and experience to run an FRC team, but together we are taking on the challenge.

FRC Team 426 – The Zombie Apocalypse Counter Task Force, or ZACTF, are combating the modern day Zombie, someone who is media addicted, glued to their phone instead of building genuine relationships. ZACTF  is instead working to use technology to its fullest extent, to overcome the traditional barriers keeping us from a truly global society.


Exciting Updates:

Team 426  will have the opportunity to meet face-to-face on March 17th – 22th for the first time at a regional competition located halfway between our two home bases. We look forward to dropping the final piece that keeps us apart, long distance technology, and unifying as a single team to compete together.

The Impossible

We’re starting a new generation of FIRST Robotics. We are creating a new model to increase FIRST participation through inter school collaboration so that way more people can get involved!
