The Mechanical Minds is a second year FIRST Robotics Competition team made up of students from Saint Stephens High School. Last year, we had a successful rookie season, and we are looking forward to returning as a strong second year team. Last year, at our first competition at UNC-Greensboro, we were the third seeded team by the end of the qualifying rounds, and we were the second alliance captain. At UNC-Greensboro, we earned the Highest Rookie Seed Award and the Rookie All Star Award. At our second competition at UNC-Asheville, we were chosen in the alliance selection, and we received the Rookie Inspiration Award.
