We Robot

We are Jefferson High School's FIRST Robotics team.

Each year, Team 2470 competes in multiple competitions held by FIRST Robotics, which require teams to design and construct real robots that accomplish amazing feats.

Through a combination of teamwork, leadership, craftsmanship, and the arts, our team is able to push the boundaries of what motivation and hard work can accomplish. That's why We Robot.
