Camdenton LASER (Lake Area Science, Engineering, and Robotics) 3284 is a FIRST® Robotics team from the rural town of Camdenton, Missouri. After founding the FRC® progression in Camdenton, LASER and the Camdenton School District added the FLL®, & FTC® progressions.
LASER annually hosts official FIRST events such as Championships, Qualifiers, Expos, Meets, and off season meets. In 2019, LASER started the #WalkLikeWoodie social media movement to honor the legacy of Dr. Woodie Flowers.
At the beginning of the pandemic, LASER saw the need for PPE in our community and beyond. Using donated materials and 3-D printers, 3284 assembled over 3.5k face shields which were donated to hospitals and military medics in Afghanistan.
Through Gracious Professionalism and extensive outreach, LASER continues to promote the message of FIRST on a local, state, national, and international level.
