Metal Minds is a robotics team for ages 14-18 year olds who are working towards competing in the first tech challenge in Sydney.    The challenge teaches students how to design, build and program robots to a set specification.


Metal Minds is the only FTC independent team in Tasmania, not attached to a school.

The Intent of Metal Minds Robotics Team:

The group is still in its infancy, it was set up by a 15 year old home school student.   Every year the team will fund raise to buy additional items for their robot and to enable them to fly to the mainland to compete in the first tech challenge.  

They will receive a challenge in September each year, which will entail them designing, building and programming a robot to compete in the new challenge.
