The Mad Rockers. FIRST Team 2973.
The Mad Rockers are a team representing Bob Jones and James Clemens High Schools in Madison, AL. Our team works to implement the critical thinking and engineering skills required to be successful in the fields of science, engineering, and technology. With the help of our generous sponsors, caring mentors, encouraging schools, and eager students, we hope to spread the values of FIRST and BEST within our community.
The mechanical team is responsible for design, prototyping, building, and testing the robot. We deal with tackling the game head on and figuring out a way to succeed.
Leads: Jeremiah & Jerry
Without software, the robot would be just a toaster. On this team, we think of new, innovative ways to make the robot move and do tasks.
Lead: Not Decided Yet
Electricity is pretty cool. We can't live without it. The electrical team works on power distribution, understanding how the robot functions on a fundamental level, and making sure the various sensors and functions are layed out well.
Thanks to our sponsors, students can pursue interests and jobs in careers of engineering. Sponsors support the team with mechanical parts, software, computers, tools, services, knowledge and allow us to compete. We are in debt to everything they provide for us. Check them out below!
