Welcome to the webpage of Safe Harbor Robotics in Michigan City, Indiana.
We are FIRST Robotics Team #3936, also known as ROBO BLITZ!
The ROBO BLITZ team is based out of Michigan City High School.
Team HistoryIn 2012, as the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics program celebrated its 20th Anniversary Season, Michigan City unveiled its Rookie Robotics Team. With a dedicated and talented team of high school students, Michigan City Team 3936 earned the prestigious Midwest Region Rookie All-Star Award in Chicago and competed at the 2012 World Championships held in the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis.As part of the Safe Harbor Afterschool Program and Hours for Ours mentoring program, which champion youth-based science and engineering activities in an Afterschool setting, our robotics program was one of three Afterschool programs nationwide to be showcased in the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation Annual Report.Building on these accomplishments, we expanded our program to include the FIRST Tech Challenge for Middle School students and the FIRST Lego League, as well as the Junior FIRST Lego League for Elementary School students.Utilizing the proven FIRST Robotics suite of programs we are proud to begin inspiring engineers and scientists at the earliest stages of learning and then continuing to guide them through their high school years and on to their future roles as leaders in our communities.The mission of FIRST is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication and leadership. With the support of our community, family members and mentors, the MC Robotics Team strives to build up our community’s children, help develop leaders of the future and provide a safe place for learning and innovation.2020 Highlight: 3D Printed PPE Face ShieldsThroughout the Covid-19 Pandemic, Safe Harbor's MC Robotics Team donated thier time to create thousands of face shields using the team's 3D printers, and donated them to surrounding hospitals and nursing homes. Thank you to the Michigan City Community Enrichment Corporation for your support of this innitiative.
