Big Hero 6

On Friday, the 7th of November, Disney’s Big Hero 6 opened in theaters. Our team was given the opportunity to help out the producers and writers as technical consultants. They were interested in the jargon that robot-building teenagers use.

A team of writers and producers visited our shop and asked numerous questions about FIRST®, STEM, and robotics in general. We had the chance to introduce ourselves and our team, give them a tour of our machine shop and give ideas for their movie. Team 4 was able to help inspire cool additions to the movie such as a McMaster-Carr catalog making a cameo in the film. We were honored to lend a hand in the making of Big Hero 6 and spread awareness about FIRST and STEM.
