Recently, we had the pleasure of having Senator Michael D. MacDonald visit Team 4810’s build space located at Midstates Industrial Group. After a tour of the shop, we discussed how robotics plays a major role in Michigan and Macomb County’s growing, promising future in STEM. He communicated how STEM concepts are not only important in school, but also in the workplace as well as the community. Lastly, he discussed how Michigan is hoping to become a major player in the space launch industry in the near future. And of course he got to drive the robot! We want to thank Senator MacDonald for taking time out of his busy schedule to come see what I.AM.ROBOT is all about!
Later that day, we had lunch with Midstates, our sponsor that provides our build space as a thank you for continuing to provide I.AM.ROBOT space to to grow and develop as a team. I.AM.Robot is so grateful that we are able to call Midstates home!
