Members of the Advanced Technology Academy-High School FIRST Robotics team, make measurements with the balls used by their robot at the Michigan Engineering Zone (MEZ) in Detroit, MI at the start of a new season for FIRST Robotics.

 The MEZ is an innovative space where Detroit students acquire knowledge and tools to propel themselves in higher education and careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The FIRST Robotics teams of Detroit high schools stand center stage at the MEZ.
