FIRST Robotics Competition Team 423 was founded in 2006, combining teams from Cheltenham High School, Springfield High School (rookie year 2000), and Eastern Technical Institute. Over time, Eastern and Springfield have moved on to form their own teams in other robotics programs, and now the team solely represents Cheltenham High School. The team has ranged in size over the years, from more than thirty students to less than ten at times. We are currently looking at a team of approximately 20 students for the 2017 season. There are approximately seven adult mentors on the team; they are parents of students both current and graduated, teachers at CHS, and engineers who graciously volunteer their time.
