Clubs

Getting involved is easy at York. Joining a club is one of the best ways to: 

  • meet new people
  • explore interests outside the classroom
  • be a leader
  • serve local communities

Our club line-up is varied, and driven each year by student interest. Inspired by something not on the list? Start a new club!

In 2014, a group of York students founded Deus Ex Machina, the school’s first FRC team. Our team won the Rookie All-Star Award and advanced to the international championship in St. Louis, Missouri. Since all but two members graduated, 2015 was akin to a second rookie year for York. Fortunately, recruitment from all grade levels in 2016 allowed us to build up experience to ensure the continued existence of the team. When the 2017 FRC season started, returning students made up nearly half our team. At the end of our 2017 season we received the GM Industrial Design Award at the Silicon Valley Regional, one of only two design awards given at arguably the most competitive regional event in the country.
We are preparing for the 2018 FRC season with 12 experienced, returning students. Thanks to the assistance from two helpful mentors (Dr. Tim Stanton and Duane Davis, both from NPS), we can provide new team members the opportunity to participate in a multidisciplinary effort that goes well beyond the building of a robot. Consisting of numerous subgroups—management and fundraising, graphic and web design, engineering, programming, and more—the team not only constructs a working robot, but also gains invaluable real-world skills. In addition to participating in a competition, we are learning to collaborate—perhaps the most important skill gained throughout the course of the entire season—and to work closely with other clubs in our region to advance the aims of FIRST.
