Starting on Thursday June 7th, we will have weekly Robotics Summer Sessions for both FRC and FTC teams, which encompass grades 6 through 12.
These sessions will comprise of skill building sessions, so when the competition seasons begin the student team members can be ready to “hit the ground running” with the tools and skills needed to make it a fun, enjoyable and successful build season.
Come join us at our Build Space in the East Kentwood Freshman campus. (See the google map for location in the building–it is best to enter the build space from the outside door)
The kickoff went great. They announced and released the game animation, which is below. After watching the animation, we went over the rule book for a few hours, then we strategized for the rest of the session. We got pretty far in our strategy session and came up with several designs that we would test for the following week. All in all, the kickoff was a great success.
Welcome back to school, and with another school year means another Robotics Build Season!
This kicks off right away with FIRST Tech Challenge. Parents meeting is Monday, August 28th from 7 to 8 pm in the East Kentwood Freshman Campus Cafeteria. Season kicks off September 9th at GVSU’s Kennedy Hall of Engineering.
FIRST Robotics Competition kicks off the fall season with the Parent’s meeting on September 14th from 7 to 8pm also in the East Kentwood Freshman Campus Cafeteria. The build season kicks off in January.

We are excited to announce a dedicated space for Kentwood robotics. In the past, we have shared classroom space with Mr. Smith at EKHS. We now have a dedicated space at the Freshman Campus that includes a large room for our equipment and meetings, 3 small group workrooms, and storage space. We would love to have you join us in the dedicating the new space, meeting the next generation of engineering/scientist, and enjoying cake and cookies.
