Teams We Support
Red Storm Robotics realizes the importance of helping other robotics teams in the community. As a result, all three Kentwood middle schools have hosted FIRST robotics teams. Currently, Pinewood Middle School has two FIRST Lego League (FLL) teams. Kentwood also operates a FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) team (part of the Michigan prototype). We are very proud of all these teams and their performance at competitions!
- 3 Kentwood-wide middle school FTC teams
- Valleywood middle school FLL team
- 3 Discovery elementary FLL teams
In the fall of 2016, we supported our other Kentwood FIRST teams in various ways:
- Student mentors at their team practices
- Hosting an FLL scrimmage prior to their competition
- Demonstrated high school robot to the teams
- Hosting the Kentwood FTC regional with 33 teams from around West Michigan
The FTC Season
We also helped jump start two rookie teams. Those teams were Team Spitfire from West Michigan Aviation Academy, and Ellington Saints from East Grand Rapids High School.
