Who Are We?
We are the Morgan County robotics team, and we call ourselves Mech Tech. We're based at Brewer High School, in Somerville, Alabama, however, our team consists of members from all over Morgan County, Alabama. The 2017 year is our 6th year as a team. We have students in grades 9-12 who come from schools like Priceville, Falkville, Danville, and West Morgan. Our main goal is to inspire other students in the county to strive to succeed in whatever they set their mind to, and to encourage them to join our team, to help build their future in the engineering field.
What do We do?
We build robots for FIRST Robotics Competitions. FIRST stands for For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology. During the build season, which starts in January, we have 6 weeks to build a robot that can complete the tasks described in the "game", which is what we call the video broadcast that's put out at kickoff at the very beginning of the season. To watch this year's 2017 kickoff broadcast, click here. We have six subteams; Marketing, CAD, Video, Mechanical, Electrical, and Programming. Our home robotics regional is the Rocket City Regional, located in Hunstville, Alabama. This year, we will also be attending the St. Louis Regional.
