Executive Summery:

Team 957 SWARM Robotics overarching goal is to provide local students with a positive experience as member of a development team focused on using science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics to build a robot for the international FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) robotics competition.

Team 957 began in 2002 and is recognized as a high school club for students in the Greater Albany School District, both South and West High Schools. We are an all volunteer organization of parents, community members, and sponsors.

We receive no financial help from the school district, but are able to use their 501c3 status for tax deductible donations to our team. Our yearly budget begins at $10,000, with half of that going towards FIRST registration and the rest to build the robot and run the team. Our income is based on grants, sponsorship from local businesses, individual’s contribution, and team member’s service. People like you.

Sponsors are recognized on various Team 957 promotional materials (t-shirts and banners) at local and regional events, have their name/logo placed on the competition robot, and on this web site. Additional promotional levels available

If you would like to support the team, your assistance will be greatly appreciated.
