FRC 2013 Season

The new season for FIRST Robotics Competition is here!! The Game this year is called Ultimate Ascent! Robots will aim and shoot frisbees at slot at the end of the playing field, with pyramids to score at in the middle of the field for bonus points. For the end game, robot get extra points for climbing the different levels of the pyramid. We’re looking forward to the competitions! See you there!!

Build Season is coming soon!

It’s almost that time of year again! In a matter of weeks our high school team will be attending the FIRST Robotics Competition Season Kickoff at Grand Valley State University on January 5! After that, it’ll be straight to work with meetings every weekday and possibly Saturdays. Enjoy the break while it lasts; it’s going to be another busy season!

PTC Workshop 2012

October 27, 2012, Code Red helped host a CAD seminar at the Haworth Corporation using products from PTC such as Creo and Mathcad. We learned a lot about using CAD and other software, as well as developing ideas to solve engineering problems. Major thanks to both PTC and Haworth!

West Michigan Robotics Invitational 2012

Shout out to The Foley Freeze and Divided by Zero! You guys rock!
We made it into the elimination rounds, teaming up with The Foley Freeze and Divided by Zero for a terrific trio of robots!

Saturday, October 20, Code Red headed to the West Michigan Robotics Invitational!  The team had a lot of fun cheering, dancing and rooting on our robot. Sadly, it attempted a flip off the end of the balancing platform, but it shouldn’t be too hard to fix. It was a great last game of Rebound Rumble! Congratulations to teams 3357 The Comets, 904 D Cubed, and 85 Built on Brains! Also a special shout out to our alliance partners team 910 The Foley Freeze and team 2405 Divided By Zero! Can’t wait to see you all again next year!

Code Red Competes at Niles

After several days of intense competition Code Red managed to pull through in 18th place at Niles, out of 41 teams! Although we didn’t make the elimination rounds Code Red still earned the Team Spirit award, for our “enthusiastic support of FIRST and gracious professionalism”.
