    You can’t pick the hand you’re dealt, but you can choose how you play your cards!
    The off season competition held at Lapeer Center for Innovation occured the 19th and 20th of July. Andrew Meikle and Emillee Lane, members of the Davison Robotics team, controlled the robot with the record of 7 wins and 5 loses, finishing in 6th place out of 32 teams. 
    The students who participated at this event were ecstatic at how well we all did. 

    "Driving at a competition was a whole new experience at robotics. The fear I had was completely subsided when I got up to the controls. The rush of the game and excitement of everyone surrounding me made everything worthwild." -Emillee Lane, Class of 2020
    Kettering Leadership Camp
    "Over the course of three days students from around Michigan participated in team building activities and listed to presentations from Kettering staff and professors. Juniors Caleb Eicher and Andrew Meikle, and senior Sydney Hardesty learned how to be leaders on their FIRST team and their community by gaining skills like networking, problem solving, and conflict resolution. Activites ranged from someone in the group being from someone in the group being blindfolded and othrs having to lead them through an obstacle course to groups being divided for assembly lines. Our students learned valuable leassons that they are already planning to take back to their team to improve processes and advance student leadership." - Sydney Hardesty, Class of 2020

    Student of the Month
    Linda Renner has been involved in robotics for the last 9 years because her father is a mentor on the highschool team. At Robo-Con, she was the technician and did a fantastic job for it being her first time. 


    Members from the FTC team attended Robo-Con to teach older and younger participants how to drive their robot. 
    "I had a fabulous time. It was cool to learn how to drive our robot while teaching otyhers how to drive it as well. I also really enjoyed working with kids. The vendors in the lobby also had a ton of neat stuff. My favorite was the U of M table. It was a great day filled with a lot of cool stuff." - Rose Johnson, Class of 20

  • Sponsorship

    Without the help of sponsors the teams aren't sure where they would be.  Cost of supplies, travel expenses, logistics, marketing and outreach events all must be funded.  Couldn't do any of it without sponsors and we of all ages can not thank our sponsors enough for helping make it all happen. THANK YOU!
