Welcome to the Ministry of Mechanics (MoM) webpage!
FIRST, “For Inspiration and Research in Science and Technology,” provides opportunities for building robots, sharing information with other teams around the world, competing at a high but cooperative level, and inspiring others to enjoy science and technology. MoM team members have an exceptional opportunity to create, build and learn!
Ministry of Mechanics began in the spring of 2018 with the support and sponsorship of DENSO, Athens, and Energy Systems Group (ESG). The CHS Engineering Department was approached by these companies about starting a FIRST Robotics team in the fall of 2017, and planning/preparation/application for the team began in the spring of 2018.
In our first competition at the 2019 Smoky Mountain Regional, we placed 32 out of 52 teams, and won the Rookie Inspiration award with our robot "Karen!"
