We are Team 3489!

Team 3489 “Category 5” is a FIRST Robotics Competition Team from Summerville, South Carolina, just west of Charleston.  Our team has members from Summerville High School, Ashley Ridge High School, Pinewood Prep, Palmetto Scholars Academy and home school students.  We are fun-loving and hard-working students who know how to get things done!  We build and practice in a professional work environment, the Bosch manufacturing plant.  Team 3489 works in four sub-teams: 

  • Mechanical Engineering (Design, fabrication, assembly)

  • Electrical Engineering (DC controls, wiring)

  • Programming (JAVA)

  • Business and Marketing (outreach, business development, marketing, 3D animation, photography, web-site development, and more)

Our goals are to learn about new technology and teach others that challenges in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) can be great fun!
