Metro Tech Mechanical Monsters' FIRST Robotics Competition

The Mechanical Monsters is Metro Technology Center's student robotics team. The students, led by a group of faculty and mentors, design, build, and program a robot to compete in the annual Oklahoma Regional FIRST Robotics Competition.

FIRST, which stands for For the Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology, is a nonprofit organization founded in 1989 by Dean Kamen. Kamen is an inventor, entrepreneur, and a strong promoter of science, technology, and engineering. He is best known as the inventor of the Segway. Kamen noticed that the number of American students in the science and technology field was widely decreasing and he wanted to inspire young adults to join the vast field of science and technology. 

The Metro Mechanical Monsters and their mentors rely on sponsors to provide meals and snacks during the three day competition.
