On July 13th, once again Red Storm participated in Maranda’s Park Party held at East Kentwood High School.
Once again we’ll be participating in the City of Kentwood’s 4th of July parade. Come watch our robots partake in the parade.
Tonight at EKHS we’ll be decorating our parade float and getting all of our batteries charged. Feel free to stop by and give us a hand.
We’ve just relaunched our YouTube channel. Come visit us there and please subscribe.
We’ll be uploading our old videos that we had on another channel as well as those hosted by Mentor Dennis.
We’re also looking at using our Google+ page, so feel free to circle us there.
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.

Red Storm was featured on WZZM 13 TV as the team departed for the FIRST World Championships in St. Louis, Missouri.
For the first time in our team history we’ve got an invite to attend the FIRST World Championship!
We’ll be there from April 26th through April 29th with our FTC Team 5292!
For the third time in our team history, we’ve been able to qualify for the Michigan State Championship. This marks the second time we’ve actually been able to attend.
At the Michigan State Championship we were seeded into the DTE Energy Foundation Division. In qualification play, we finished in rank 14 with a record of 5 wins, 6 losses and 1 tie.
We were the second pick of the 7th alliance, captained by The Power Chargers, Team 894. Our other alliance partner was the Robostangs, Team 548. Sadly we lost to the 2nd alliance in the quarterfinals.
On Wednesday a small “strike force” of Red Storm Team members and mentors will head to Saginaw Valley State University to set up our Pit and get ready for competition.
Thanks to our performance at Lakeview and a good showing at Kentwood we have qualified for the Michigan State Championships. There we will compete with our Robot and also for Chairman’s.
Good luck Red Storm Robotics, may we do well enough to earn a slot to Worlds to join our FTC Team there.
