Missoula Robotics Team 3216 is a group of 25 high school students (from all Missoula County high schools), 4 full-time adult mentors, and 6 part-time adult mentors who are passionate about learning and teaching Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) through the most challenging level of competition offered to students. Our team competes in a competition run by FIRST, of which there are over 4,400 teams worldwide, yet we are the only team in Montana.
The FRC level of competition intensely challenges our students over a six week period with problem solving and learning. The objective of the build season is to progress from a blank sheet of paper, through the design, build, testing, and development of their own totally unique robot. In past years we have competed in places such as Calgary, Salt Lake City, Seattle, and Spokane with the goal of qualifying for the world championship.
