CAD Workshop and Santa Claus Parade

Almost 50 people from Code Red and other teams attended a CAD (Computer-Aided-Design) workshop on 11/19/11! PTC (one of our sponsors) had a instructor flown in from Minneapolis and provided hands on training in Mathcad, Windchill, and Creo Elements. Also, PTC kindly donated software and manuals for the dozens of middle school and high school students from many area FRC and FTC teams.

We were honored to participate in the Grand Rapids Santa Claus Parade with Lutheran Child and Family Services. It was a great partnership to raise awareness of the need for Foster parents and to gain support for their program of serving kids in need.

Fall 2011: FTC Has Started

FIRST Tech Challenge has come to the State of Michigan this year. FTC for short. FTC is a robotics program for middle schoolers, to put something in between the FLL program and the FRC program. In precious years, middle schoolers in Michigan did not have a robotics program to come to in between FIRST Lego League, and FIRST Robotics Competition. Now, Code Red is now hosting two FTC teams.

2011-2012 Pre-Season

Code Red has kicked off the season with its annual pre-season meetings! The build season doesn’t start until January 9th, but Code Red believes that we shouldn’t put things off until the end of the season. Code Red doesn’t only build robots, but builds better people in our community.  Code Red Robotics wishes you the best of luck in the upcoming season.

US Army Robot

The US Army came to the Code Red build space on June 29, 2011 to demonstrate a new robot that can do reconnaissance missions, and go places where it is to dangerous to send a human being.  That was the main reason that it was made, so we could spare lives.  Go to the Army Robot Page, here.
