Back in 2010, a group of Westminster students formed a club as an outlet to explore their collective interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math). In 2011, several members reshaped this group into a fledgling robotics team, choosing to join the First Robotics Competition community in 2011. Team 4256, also known as the Cyborg Cats, was born. Today, the team includes over 80 student engineers. As the Cyborg Cats continue to evolve, their purpose remains the same; they strive to use robotics as an agent of community improvement and a canvas for self-expression.
