FTC Team #16221, The Manchester Machine Makers 4-H Club, is pleased to announce that Engineered Printing Solutions in East Dorset VT has joined us in a partnership of support and mentoring. Additionally, they will offer an internship program to team members for the 2021-2022 FIRST Tech Challenge Season. EPS is committed to inspiring our young roboticists, building a community of scientists and engineers here in Northshire.
The competition theme this year is “Freight Frenzy” and the team is busy designing and building a robot to accomplish the tasks outlined by the FIRST organization (www.firstinspires.org). FIRST was founded in 1987 by innovator and inventor Dean Kamen to promote STEM advancement for young people, and is continued and supported by thousands of volunteers and mentors around the world.
The Manchester Machine Makers is a 4-H Club with members in grades 7-12 from all over Bennington County.
