Our team has been together for 11 years now. We started as a high school club when US FIRST was in its infancy. Our team was founded by a Blaine High School teacher by the name of Tim Nestrud. He is the High School’s carpentry teacher. A reason why our team has been such a success in the past years, is that our school has a STEM program built into it called CEMS (Center for Engineering, Math, and Science). Many of the team members are part of the CEMS program. Many of the things the students learn in the engineering classes assist in the construction of the robot. As well as what they learn participating in FRC assist with the hands on, and manufacturing parts. As of recently our group became an official Blaine Team and part of the MSHSL. Opening up another world of opportunities for us as a team.
