What is FIRST Robotics Competition?

Combining the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology.

We call FIRST Robotics Competition the ultimate Sport for the Mind. High-school student participants call it “the hardest fun you’ll ever have.”

Under strict rules, limited resources, and an intense six-week time limit, teams of students are challenged to raise funds, design a team "brand," hone teamwork skills, and build and program industrial-size robots to play a difficult field game against like-minded competitors. It’s as close to real-world engineering as a student can get.

The positive impact on
FIRST Robotics Competition participants is gratifying and well documented. Over 88% have more interest in doing well in school and 92% are more interested in attending college.

This year a team of 8 students, 4 adult mentors: Mrs. McGahey, Mr. McGahey and Mr. Roberts, coached by Mr. Quinteros, will join two district competitions, one in Muskegon March 13 and 14 and the second in Big Rapids March 27 and 28. Please come support our team, events are open to the public. Robotics helps our student learned many skills that will be of help in the real world. The skills they learned are problem solving, thinking out of the box, team work, communication, computer programming, building skills, responsibility, etc.. The old african proverb says that it takes a village to raise a child, helping this team be successful, actually took a village. We are thankful with our superintendent Mr. Heitmeyer for his support.  All mentors for their hard work and encouragement. All the teachers for their moral support but most importantly, thanks to the parents for allowing their students to participate and for their constant support.
