Grand Rapids Mini Maker Faire

Once again Red Storm FRC and FTC demoed at the Grand Rapids Mini Maker Faire on August 20th & 21st.  We shown off our 2013 FRC Robot, 2016 FRC Robot and our FTC-sized Summer Session Frisbee robots.  One robot shot Frisbee, another would pick them off the floor and score them into the goal using pneumatics and the 3rd would pick them off of the floor and score them using a motorized arm.
