Mission Statement

The mission of team 812 is to foster and raise awareness of the STEAM field and the FIRST message in to our communities. We want students have the opportunity to be working with real engineers and participating in engineering-related programs. Lifelong skills will be established with problem solving and collaborators and a new generation of engineers and scientists will rise.

President's Message

When I first joined The Midnight Mechanics as a 7th grader, I had no idea how rewarding of an experience it would be for me and how many opportunities it would lead me to. Team 812 has allowed me to grow alongside a family that has been there for me season after season.
We've struggled together, learned together, and have been able to strive together no matter the circumstances; and for this I am eternally grateful. My team's passion is extraordinary in every way, and that is something that I know will never fade away.
