His students describe him as a “constant” and a
“connector,” and say he teaches that there are no

FIRST
RoboticsCompetition
(FRC) Team 842Mentor Faridodin “Fredi” Lajvardi is
the recipient of the 2013Woodie FlowersAward.
In his 25 years as a science teacher at Carl Hayden
HighSchool inPhoenix, Arizona, Lajvardi has helped
his students achieve numerous goals, including four
regional
FIRST
Chairman’sAwards, threeArizona
State FRC titles, and the 2008Chairman’sAward.
Themottoof Team842— “If you think it, you can
make it happen”— is a fitting sentiment for students
who come from a school where 90percent are
Hispanic and themajority rely on a federally-assisted
free lunchprogram. In fact, Lajvardi has been able to
develop a team culture that encourages his students
to consider a collegepreppath. Tomany students
whoseparents never graduatedhigh school, a college
education is oftenout of reach. However, in just the
past five years, 30 teammembers have gone on to
university-level engineeringprograms.
Thanks toLajvardi and his effortswith the
FalconRobotics, insteadof limitations, these
students see opportunities.
