The 1836 Milken Knights are a robotics team that focus not only on building robots, but building better people. It is our goal to challenge youth to create a lasting effect on their community through service learning, Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics.
FIRST is an international organization which uses competitive robotics as a vehicle for promoting science & technology. FIRST allows high school students to work side by side with professional mentors to learn skills ranging from engineering to marketing, animation and business.
As a grade 7 - 12 independent college-preparatory institution, Milken Community Schools is a place of rigorous academic preparation and intellectual inquiry: a place of profound and transformative experiences, with learning, spiritual practice, and ethical practice at the foundation of those experiences.
The Milken Knights are proud to partner with several different organizations to help spread STEM education. Each of these partners has helped our community grow, and given our students the opportunity to help others find their passions.
The 1836 Milken Knights robotics team are looking for sponsors and mentors to help launch our team forward on the path to success. If you are an engineer, graphic designer, public speaker, mechanic, writer, or have a job in a STEAM industry then we would love to learn from your skills and knowledge. If you have a business and would like to share your business skills, then the Milken Knights are the perfect subjects.
This year, our robotics team has brought in many new mentors. We are excited to have them work with the team and help us gain new knowledge. Most of our mentors specialize in certain categories of STEM. For example, there are mentors for machining and drive that work closely with students on that subject. If you would like to be a mentor please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, We are happy to receive any help from all fields including those to do with business and public relations. Help us build better people.
