E=MC4I, along with Robert Bosch LLC and SPAWAR, is sponsoring FIRST* Robotics Team 3489. The rookie team (also known as “Category 5”) has 6 weeks to design, build and test a robot that will compete March 25-26 at the Palmetto Regional Robotics Competition in the North Charleston Coliseum. If they do well there, Team 3489 could go to the National Competition in St. Louis, Missouri.

E=MC4I is providing the team with Waterjet and laser jet fabricated parts, helping to keep their robot light and strong, while greatly reducing the fabrication time.

*FIRST (“For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology”) is a program started 20 years ago to connect students with engineers and technicians in an exciting hands-on challenge.  FIRST includes competitions for grammar, middle and high school age students, with thousands of teams across the country and around the world.
