FIRST Robotics Team 533, the PSIcotics
We are FIRST Robotics Competition Team 533, The PSIcotics, from Lindenhurst, New York. Our team acts as an after-school program at Lindenhurst Senior High School for students grades 9 through 12 with one true goal in mind: prepare young individuals to succeed in their lives following high school. How do we do this? The answer is simple: through robots!
As a dynamic team competing in the FIRST company, our team is tasked with building a life-sized robot that must compete against other teams in a game created by FIRST. Each year there’s a new game, new challenges, and new members that join our team. But one thing remains the same: the implementation of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, or STEM, into the lives of our members.
While STEM may serve as a crucial component of our team, here at Team 533, we don’t just build robots; we build people. How? Because we believe that everyone has the ability for greatness, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, or background, and we make it our mission to unlock that potential. We value personal development just as much as mental development, and we strive to help our members discover who they truly are while preparing, inspiring, and building every student into the best versions of themselves.
With everything that our team does, we value the significance of making strides towards our mission. Care to learn more about Team 533, The PSIcotics? Explore our website!
