About Us


We are a FIRST Robotics Team located in West Monroe, Louisiana.  We strive to better the community by providing a safe learning environment for kids who want to further their education in a STEM field.  This team was founded in 2010, when we were invited to participate in the United States Air Force Doolittle Institute’s Mini-Urban Challenge.  We began participating in FIRST Robotics Competition in the 2011.  Our name, MAGNAtech, stems from the Latin term Magna meaning big or great, thus our name means BIGtechnology.


From August to April, we meet every Tuesday from 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm.  During the months of January and February, the Build team meets Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm, and Saturdays from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm.  We begin each meeting in room 7102 with an all team meeting before breaking into our individual teams.
