We are Morgan County Mech Tech Team 3959. This is our 7th year as a team competing in FIRST Robotics Competition. We have participated in seven different regionals and earned a trip to the World Championship twice. The team has received several awards over the past two years including Industrial Design awards, a Quality award, an Imagery award, and multiple Finalists awards. Mech Tech is composed of high schools students from all across Morgan County, Alabama, and is proud to be one of the home teams for NASA. The United Launch Alliance as well as others have sponsored our program to compete in past competitions. We are eager to start the 2018 build season and compete once more.
We would like to welcome and thank our new sponsors!
