Team 135 is a FIRST Robotics Competition team from Northern Indiana’s Penn High School. They give students opportunities to experience real-world engineering through competitive robotics and work to spread the appreciation of STEM throughout their community. Team 135 is responsible for the entire Mission to Engineer Website and works closely with Bill Binko, founder of ATMakers, to ensure that the mission is running as planned. Team 135 is still working closely with the Hunt Family to ensure that Ella is able to accomplish as many goals as she can. To find out more about Team 135, click here.
Founded by Bill Binko, co-founder and principal technologist at LessonPix.com, we hope to provide descriptions and instructions that allow a community of Makers (for example a high-school robotics club or regulars at a MakerSpace) to build customized technology solutions for Assistive Technology Professionals and individuals whose lives would be enriched by them. ATMakers.org is an experiment in solving problems in Assistive Technology using the skills and tools of the Maker community. In short, we’ve seen tools in the Open-Source Hardware and Software community that can be incredibly useful for people with severe physical and cognitive challenges. ATMakers was originally responsible for the introduction of Team 135 and the Hunt Family and ever since they have been working closely to ensure the success of other families like Ella’s.
