Team Midnight Invention is a diverse group of people ranging in ages, background and experience. Most of the team members came together through their experiences in the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics program. FIRST is dedicated to inspiring high school students to pursue careers in science, technology, and engineering. Other members of our team come through their connections with Midnight Invention LLC, a company whose ideals include exploring new boundaries in creative design and innovative possibilities . Working in concert with clients, Midnight Invention helps to develop new ideas and create new products which will have a profound impact on the world as we know it. Through many brainstorming sessions, a lot of creative thinking, and elbow grease, Team Midnight Invention has developed an original Combat Robot which we believe will succeed in upcoming competitions.
