History

As the 2010-2011 school year began, a number of students, faculty, and community members expressed interest in a FIRST Robotics team being hosted at Metamora Township High School. As a result, MTHS investigated the possibility of bringing the program to the school. In the fall of 2010, a FIRST Robotics team at MTHS was just a dream, but Mr. Joe Bachman was determined to make a reality. After a year of extensive research, speeches to school board members, and collaboration with other area FIRST teams, the Metamora/Woodford Area Robotics Team was born.
