About the CyberKnight’s:

The CyberKnights, also known as FIRST Team 195, is a robotics team from Southington High School in Southington, CT. The team has actively participated in regional and championship competitions since their first season in 1998.

“The team brings a unique experience and different way of involving students. Rather than just playing with robots in an after-school club, these students will be working in a true engineering and business environment alongside professionals”, stated Jeff Emond, Ametek-HaydonKerk Pittman’s mentor and sponsor for the CyberKnights. The team is one of nearly 2000 FIRST robotics teams around the world. Due to budgets being very slim, they rely exclusively on company and community sponsors to keep the program running.
