The Washburn Millerbots, now in our 13th season, were founded in 2008 by Sarah Etzel, Peter Grul, Jerrod Nelson, Mark Le Feber, and Linda Teppo. Based out of Washburn High School in Minneapolis, Minnesota, we compete as FIRST Robotics Team 2549. Over the past decade, our team has won four Regional competitions, two Imagery awards, two Safety awards, one Engineering Inspiration award, one Industrial Design Award, and gone on to compete at Nationals four times.

As Millerbots, we are more than just a sports team, we are a family. While our obvious aim as a FIRST Robotics team is to win each season, we have other goals as well. We provide our team members with experiences in real-world engineering, design, and problem-solving; we learn how to work together as a team and effectively communicate complex ideas, even through disagreement.
