Red Storm Robotics is excited to announce our 2021 summer program from July 26-29. All middle and high school students for the upcoming school year are welcome and no experience is necessary. Meetings will be 6:00-8:00 PM over four days (Monday-Thursday) at our team meeting and build space in the East Kentwood Freshman Campus. The camp offers a beginner-friendly opportunity to build and program a simple working robot in a small group in just a few days and test it out in a friendly competition with other groups. Skills from this camp are useful, though not required, for any students interested in joining our middle and high school teams in the fall/winter (while all students are welcome at our summer camp, team membership is currently limited to Kentwood Public Schools students).
To sign up for our mailing list and RSVP for the camp, please fill out this form. If the form doesn’t work, or you have any other questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Our team space is on the back side of theFreshman Campus (not the main entrance/parking lot). The EKHS complex has had major renovations to its roads/parking lots which are unfortunately not yet shown in most map apps. From the Kalamazoo Avenue entrance, drive past the main high school building and freshman campus, turn right onto Transportation Drive and then another right turn (through the woods, after a Pinewood Middle School parking lot). From 60th Street, Transportation Drive will be on your left past the middle school, then take the same right turn. Our door has a sidewalk up to it and will be clearly marked.
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)
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.
If you’re interested in being a part of either robotics program, please fill out this form.
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.
