Who is Team 191?

Team 191, the X-Cats, is a robotics team started in 1992, by drawing upon the brightest minds from Joseph C. Wilson Magnet High School. The X-Cats have produced a steady stream of high quality robots and successful young adults since the beginning. We are one of the few remaining founding teams left.

Vision & Mission

FIRST Vision:
"To transform our culture by creating a world where science and technology are celebrated and where young people dream of becoming science and technology heroes"
~ Dean Kamen, Founder

FIRST Mission:
Our mission is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.

X-Cats Mission:
The Xerox Wilson FIRST Partnership is in support of the FIRST mission to inspire today's youth without regard to race, sex or national origin; and to create a demand among them to excel in science and technology. We are a "back to basics" team. The inspiration of the student participants on our team is our number one priority. We are building interested, intelligent members of society who get involved and participate. We are building people as much as robots. We will actively recruit students who need and want support in planning for their futures. We will strive to have the team of adults and students reflect the ethnic and gender diversity within Xerox and the Rochester City School District

Our X-Cats family member is in need of help:
Our former X-Cats' coach, Philip Kruse, is in need of help. He was diagnosed with Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC) - an autoimmune liver condition - and needs a living donor with blood types A+, A-, O+ or O- for a transplant.
