Located in the University of Michigan’s Detroit Center, the Michigan Engineering Zone (MEZ) gives Detroit students the knowledge and tools they need to propel themselves to higher education and careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
The MEZ sent two teams to the FIRST in Michigan State Championship for robotics. Team 5478, the Doughbots, were interviewed by Detroit Public Television. They had the opportunity to meet and take pictures with Dean Kamen (Founder FIRST Robotics) & Governor Rick Snyder who both signed the team's robots and were given a Pershing shirt, MEZ shirt & MEZ button.
Team 5532 interviewed for the All Star Rookie Award. Both rookie teams did a great job and made everyone at MEZ proud. MEZ website
