The 2702 Rebels are a FIRST Robotics team from Kitchener – Waterloo, Ontario
What Do We Do?
In January, FIRST releases a description of a game challenge for the year. During the following 6-12 weeks, we strategize, design, build and program a robot that competes in competitions.
Off-season we promote STEM learning, onboard new team members and sharpen our skills. We also reach out to our communities through demos and volunteering.
What is FIRST?
FIRST was created “to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders and innovators, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.”
