After attending IRI (Indiana Robotics Invitational) courtesy of Team Hammond 71, Team 3147 begins it’s year by gathering members, opening shop, and assembling its first robot.

Our first event would be the Wisconsin Regional in Milwaukee, WI. Team 3147 arranged a coach bus to take 16 eager students to the competition. It was here that we would meet other teams, compete for the first time.

What an experience!

Thanks to a Munster High School student’s trip to Massachusetts, the  help of two courageous teachers, and a couple of parents with similar interests, Team 3147 was off to a great start.
