About Our Team
We have been competing in the FIRST Robotics Competition since 2011
Robotics is more than just a club, it is a life learning experience. It teaches skills such as team cooperation, leadership and communication.
Members can be a part of many aspects, such as business, building, coding and CAD. And the best part is, no experience is needed to get started!
Our team is a very accepting community of people who will make sure every member takes part in the team.
This club also allows for interaction among students all throughout Michigan as well as the local community through a shared love of STEM, outreach, mentoring and volunteering.
Business Development & Marketing Team
Because our team operates like a business, we have a business team that oversees our team’s sustainability, outreach, and marketing efforts. From building budgets and business plans to creating social media campaigns, photography and graphic design, our Business Development & Marketing Team keeps our team ticking — and looking good — from behind the scenes.
The programmers create the code for the autonomous performance of the robot, which garners points for us in competition at the beginning of each match. They also program the automation aspect of our bot, which enables our robot to precisely perform a task, such as raise an arm 90 degrees or move forward exactly 100 feet, with just the push of a button.
Build & Strategy Team
The Build Team splits into smaller sub-teams to work on each part of the robot: electrical, CAD designing, gathering materials, prototyping, and robot construction. There is also a Strategy sub-team, because strategy should always drives design. During matches, the Strategy team scouts other teams for potential alliances in competition finals.
