The Mechanical Minds is a second year FIRST Robotics Competition team made up of students from Saint Stephens High School. We had a successful rookie season, and we are looking forward to returning as a strong second year team. Our rookie, 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. In our 2018 season, we received the Judges’ Award at the UNC-Asheville competition and the Team Spirit Award at the Forsyth County Event.
