Robotics Ribbon Cutting for New STEM Space
Mercy High School and the Greater Farmington Area Chamber of Commerce hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony for the Mercy Robotics Team, The Riveters, on Friday, December 16, 2016. We celebrated the new dedicated space at Mercy which will house equipment and materials to support Robotics. This new advanced space will make Robotics more feasible for Mercy students to participate and compete in the coming years as well as help contribute to STEM type activities at the school.
Mercy is the largest all-female high school in Michigan to house their own FIRST Robotics Team. Team 1481 The Riveters is only in their third year of competition, but finished 59 out of 411 teams in the State of Michigan last year and is the current defending State Champion in Imagery for the iconic representation of Rosie the Riveter. They also qualified the team for the World Championship of Robotics in St. Louis last spring. The team is dedicated to inspiring women to pursue careers in STEM related fields and the business of technology. There are currently 45 students and 20 mentors on the team.
