We are the Edwardsburg High School’s Robotics Team, the Iron Giants 5069. Robotics provides training in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM). We allow students to explore their interests in business, marketing, media, design, programming, and building. This program is hands on and student-led. We teach students life skills such as team-work, time management, responsibility, and integrity.
Every year we fund, design, build, and program a robot used to compete in tournaments run by FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology). The organization’s goal is to inspire young people to be leaders in science and technology. We are part of FRC (FIRST Robotics Competition), the largest and most intense FIRST competition.
