FRC Team 451, The Cat Attack, is a high school robotics team founded by Sylvania Northview High School, but later included students from other Toledo area high schools. We are an extra-curricular team sponsored by the DANA Holding Corporation and more. During the summer and pre-season, we build robots and work on other projects to improve our skills for the main build season. Our build season is our six-week period during which we build a robot for the FIRST Robotics Competition. After building a robot to complete the given task, the team usually competes in two regional competitions. Being on the team is a unique experience, and building a robot as a team teaches vital skills, which can be used outside the science and technology fields. These include working with a team, thinking critically, and using learned information to produce a working robot.

Our Goals

  1. Encourage the creativity of our team
  2. Infuse enthusiasm, excitement and team bonding by working on technological challenges together
  3. Build confidence, develop communication skills, and learn how rewarding a career in engineering and technology can be
  4. Encourage every student to become proficient in some area of engineering and develop leadership amongst our youth who will be the science and engineering leaders of tomorrow

Mission Statement

The Cat Attack’s mission is to experience the fun, excitement, and hard work of using math, science, technology and teamwork to accomplish goals—forming a partnership between students and engineers in the process. Excellence can be attained if you:

“Care more than others think is wise
Risk more than others think is safe
Dream more than others think is practical
Expect more than others think is possible”
