Meet The Fighting Pi!
Welcome! We are Team 1718, The Fighting Pi, a FIRST Robotics Competition team based out of the Macomb Academy of Arts and Sciences in Armada, Michigan. The first competition season our team participated in was 2006.
Our team focuses on being financially acute, promoting science, engineering and technology in our community, and drawing students from surrounding school districts to receive the FIRST experience. We are able to meet these goals by being attentive to the team budget, giving sponsor presentations, and starting FIRST Lego League and Robotics teams in the local area. To ensure our business is successful, welcoming, and has a giving environment to learn-both at competitions and at our base-the Fighting Pi donates time, money, and energy to charitable causes. By doing so, we strengthen bonds among team members, parents, volunteers, mentors, and sponsors.
