Comes after two straight award-winning seasons; March 5 event set for Bradley Tech
MILWAUKEE – After winning-back-to-back awards for the design of its robots, robotics Team 1675 – which includes students from four MPS schools – is celebrating a new season with its first-ever public open house, demonstrations and tours.
The event will provide an inside look at the team, which won Industrial Design Awards for its robots in both 2014 and 2015, and its members who are passionate about science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
Team 1675 – dubbed the “Ultimate Protection Squad” – includes students from MPS’ Lynde and Harry Bradley Technology and Trade School, Rufus King International High school, Ronald Reagan College Preparatory High School and Washington High School of Information Technology as well as Veritas High School and home-schooled students.
The public and news media are invited to the open house, set for 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. (with tours beginning at 12:20 p.m.) on Saturday, March 5 at Bradley Tech, 700 S. 4th Street, Milwaukee 53204 (guests should enter at the corner of S. 3rd Street and W. Pierce Street).
Team 1675 is one of several MPS robotics teams, including a team from Riverside University High School that advanced to the national championship after a win at last year’s regional competition.
