Cyborg Zombies was founded as a replication project for another FIRST team with ties to Springs Charter Schools. In the spring of 2010, the Science Department head at the time, Marlene Kent, met with the school's CTE (Career Technical Education) coordinator, George Essel, to discuss the integration of FIRST Robotics into the CTE curriculum. Their goal was to incorporate more project-based learning components into the CTE courses. From that meeting, FRC Team 3470 was formed, and in December of 2011, team members christened their team — Cyborg Zombies.
Soon after, in 2013, the Cyborg Zombies was recognized by the IRS as a 501 (c) 3 non profit organization. Thus, they developed and created a cabinet of Board of Directors compiled of Students and one Mentor to assist them in their careers as Board Members. These Students work to oversee not only the FRC Team, but all CTE courses throughout Springs Charter Schools.
