  2. *|MC_PREVIEW_TEXT|* Issue #25 September 2019 You can’t pick the hand you’re dealt, but you can choose how you play your cards! HOC Shines at All-Girls Event Our amazing female robotics members loaded up the trailer and headed to the Bloomfield Girls Robotics Competition this month. After a day of preliminary matches, they finished in 10th place overall, and House of Cards was selected as the 1st pick of the 6th alliance. Congratulations to these youngs ladies on a day filled with GIRL POWER! Hill's FLL Jr. League Prepares for Competition by Nicole Ferguson The Hill FIRST Lego League Jr. teams have been hard at work learning how they can build cities that are Accessible, Durable and Environmentally friendly! From learning about green roofs to building & programming model windmills to exploring their school yard for accessible features, these students are ready to build their Boomtown City. This week our high school coach and House of Cards team member, Sydney Hardesty, taught a lesson on durability and how to make earthquake proof buildings. Then, the kids put their skills to the test! Below is a picture of our durability test winners! After intersession the kids will be gearing up for competition at Kettering on November 23rd. They are 3 of 15 teams who will be competing. Good luck team! 2019 Davison Pumpkin Festival While the All-Girls Competition was taking place in Bloomfield Hills, Pumpkin Fest was taking place in Davison! Several members of the high school team and middle school teams joined forces for this great community event. The team offered work stations where kids were able to build their own robots from recycled materials, and Mrs. Jones, coach of Siple's FLL Jr. team, kindly shared her Legos at a table where kids and adults could create anything they imagined. The morning was quite chilly, but as the day grew warmer, the crowds really picked up, and the team had lots of fun assisting kids with their robots. It sure was fun seeing all of the unique creations! House of Cards in Homecoming Parade As in previous years, House of Cards walked in this year's Homecoming Parade. The day was chilly but spirits were high as the team rallied together to walk and hand out candy to spectators. As we continue to grow our program, community events like this really help us show how much fun our robotics program is! Did You Know? Did you know that in addition to Community Outreach, Community Service, Sponsor Visits and Fundraising, our House of Cards Team also has several members who are mentoring our younger teams? What a great opportunity for the younger kids to get to work with older robotics team members! In Davison, we pride ourselves on preparing our team members for the real world, and this is another excellent example of how our members can grow their leadership skills. Thank you to our high school mentors! FTC Teams Busy Building By Dee Schneider Our middle school teams, Wild Cards and Techna Cards are currently deep in the build season. We have small groups currently learning coding and CAD. We also have groups working on building the two robots we will use in our competitions this season. Our teammates have been busy writing in their engineering notebooks to document everything being done. A few of the high school robotics students have joined us to help mentor the team. We are getting closer to our first competition and starting to see it all come together. House of Cards Finishes Ren Fest Every weekend in August and September, thousands of visitors come from miles around to visit this recreation of a fictional English Village during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. This year, Davison's House of Cards took over the 600 section, serving all kinds of food and treats. This is our biggest fundraising event and the team members, along with their families and friends really stepped up this year to make sure the job was well done. The days are long, but filled with friendship, camaraderie and laughter. Thank you to everyone who volunteered their time to make this year's Renaissance Festival a huge success!

FIRST Says Goodbye to a Legend You don't have to be around FIRST Robotics very long before you know who Dr. Woodie Flowers is. House of Cards, along with the entire FIRST Community is mourning the sudden lost of a great leader. From the FIRST website, "Throughout the 30 years of FIRST, Woodie has been an incredible supporter of mission, a friend to everyone he met, and an inspiration to our students, mentors, volunteers, supporters, and staff. Woodie's legacy will live on indefinitely through the gracious nature of our community and our ongoing commitment to empowering educators and building global citizens." Woodie lived and led by example with his "Gracious Professionalism", something we instill in our own team right from the start, and something we are known for exemplifying. He was a great man and will be deeply missed.

Stardinals Get Into the Swing By Rita Jones This year’s Stardinal season is off to a great start! Thursday, September 12th was the first parent meeting and the following week, the Stardinals met for their first official session. This year’s challenge, Welcome to Boomtown, requires students to conceive an idea for a building in “Boomtown” that not only meets the needs of the community but is durable and beautiful as well! Siple Elementary's squad consists of 20 members in three different teams, and is a part of the FIRST Lego League Junior Division. They meet on Thursday afternoons and will be presenting their models at the Kettering EXPO on November 23rd. The Stardinals are coached by Rita Jones. HOC Headed to All-Girls Event By Sydney Hardesty Photo by Stephanie Hardesty On October 12th, the House of Cards will be participating in our second All-Girls off-season competition. We are proud to say that out of thirty kids, our team last year had nine girls on the team that participated in the event and placed in the quarterfinals. This year we have eight total girls on the team and six going to the event. Running like a normal competition, the All-Girls Competition has teams with all girl pit crew, drive team, human player, and scouts. In addition to just competing, there are professional women in engineering that come and speak about their journey in the field. We would love for anyone to come out and support us! If you are interested you can contact us on our website, davisonrobotics.com. House of Cards Takes On Ren Fest By Owen Martin Photos by Stephanie Hardesty The Renaissance Festival is a fun event that runs every weekend each year in August and September. On the Davison Robotics Team, each member is responsible for a certain amount of hours volunteering there because it is our main fundraiser. There are many stations that need to be worked, including Reubens and Cubans, Crazy Tacos, Jerky, Ice Cream, Bakery, Pizza, Drinks, Pretzels, and, of course, Turkey Legs. It may not sound fun making and serving food all day, but we can rotate out with other team member every so often and talk to people around us! Sometimes it’s busier than others, some stations sell more products than the rest, and it’s a long time on your feet, but after it’s over, you look back and think, “That wasn’t so bad.” Not only that, but you get to dress up in some authentic costumes and see what life was like hundreds of years ago! It is definitely something I would not want to miss seeing, nor will I ever forget it. Our Robotics Program wouldn’t be possible without the efforts of the team, and all of the support our family and friends give us during these Renaissance Festival weekends. Student of the Month Name: Grant Davis Grade: 9th Favorite Class: Algebra 2 Dream Job: Inventor/Game Designer Little Known Fact About Me: I like to make people laugh and I like challenges. Kettering Kickoff The Davison House of Cards headed to the 2019 Kettering Kickoff on September 20 & 21. Teams from across the state traveled to the event to participate in this competition that allows this year's high school teams to compete, using last season's robots and playing field. With new drivers just getting the feel for the controls, House of Cards, Team 3534, placed 23rd out of 44 teams. They were selected to play on the fifth alliance team and were eliminated in the quarterfinals. As always, the team showed "gracious professionalism" towards their fellow robotics teams, and led by example. As a member of the Mid-Michigan Robotics Alliance, House of Cards, was also responsible, in part, for field set up and tear down as a designated host team at Kettering University. Davison's Pumpkin Festival is coming up on Saturday, October 12th, from 10am to 6pm. Davison Robotics will once again be offering a "Build-a-Robot Station, as well as a Lego Station!

Robo-Con 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. FTC 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 7th Grade Student of the Month Morgan Ballant says that she has taken this opportunity to make new friends through the team work shown . She likes robotics because it allows her to do maintenance on the robot as well as drive it. For the futrure Morgan wants to persue an engineering dagree at Kettering. 8th Grade Student of the Month Caden Tucker has learned a lot about leadership, mentorship, and how to work on a team. The programming, design, and fundraising activites have peaked his interest the most. Caden's future plans are going to Kettering or Michigan for engineering.
