22-23 Team Picture
We are a robotics team of twenty-four students, based in Mayer, Minnesota. We participate in a robotics program called FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC). The Mayer Lutheran Robotics team was founded in 2010 and is led by coaches Ben Schulteis and Matt McClintock.
Design and Engineering
- Continue to use CAD software to help us design our entire robot and specific parts for 3D printing and fabrication
- Learn new techniques to increase productivity when designing/building.
- Expand our knowledge of programming by experimenting with new techniques, software, and sensors to improve robot accuracy during matches.
- Continue to document our entire design process in our engineering notebook, in a way that allows it to be a tool for our team.
- Connect with companies by promoting FIRST Robotics, sharing what our team has done, and recruiting professional mentors
- Fundraise to meet our budgetary needs this season.
- Mentor our new team members to help them grow in their knowledge and be engaged in the MLHS Stem Club.
- Empower younger children to see the fun and importance of STEM in our summer Camp.
This year we grew, bringing our total to twenty-four members. Enabling us to offer three teams: Team 4650 and Team 5713. Team 4650 consists of upper classmen or returning members. Team 5713 consists of 10th graders. Team 24187 consists of 9th and 8th graders.
The STEM room is open Monday-Friday from 3:05-5:30 for all robotics members to use. Each day a team is given priority access to tools, computers, and mentors, but all members are welcome to come in and work on their robot, their personal engineering projects, and gather as a community to socialize.
Matt McClintock and Ben Schulteis act as both coaches and mentors to advise these teams.
