2015 is our second school year in the (FRC)FIRST Robotics Competition.
Most of our members from last year are going to be able to remain on the team and we are expecting to increase the amount of members on our team.
We have worked our way through our first competition season earning a highest seeded rookie award and ranking number 76th out of 277 teams in the state of Michigan.
We are looking forward to getting a strong start to this next school year with community presentations scheduled at the Durand Memorial Library and the Vernon Public Library Car Show and training sessions to prepare for the 2015 season such as autocad and html/ css web design.
All of our mentors are planning on returning for this season and we are always welcoming more help.
