Once again this summer, we are offering summer sessions for both FRC and FTC teams and interested students who will be in 6th to 12th grades this fall. Come visit us at East Kentwood High School in Room 206 (West Wing) every Thursday evening from 6:30 pm until 9pm.
On October 7th, 2017, we will again be helping to host the 2nd Annual Grand Rapids Girls competition. This is a great opportunity for all FIRST Robotics Competition Teams to have all of their female team members shine.
Red Storm FTC held their own with a 2.5 week old robot against High School teams that had been working ever since kickoff. They finished qualification plays in Rank 55 out of 64 with a record of 1 – 6 – 2. It was at least cool to partner with another Michigan Team in Qualification Round 131.
I’m proud of the team as they kept their spirits up and enjoyed the experience of being at Worlds. I think we’re spoiled now with a 9×9 pit for FTC after typically only having a table at other events.
Many, many thanks to everyone who helped put this new Robot together, especially Pat. Our new “mini-fridge” was the nicest looking robot in either division.
This year we hosted our 3rd FIRST Robotics Competition District Event. It was one of the best running ones yet. Thanks to everyone on the planning committee and all of the volunteers who helped make this event hum along.
After qualification our team was ranked 25th among some pretty heavy competition. We were then selected as the 2nd pick of the 8th alliance. Unfortunately we were eliminated in the quarterfinals by the eventual event winners, That One Team, Stryke Force and The Iron Giants.
