On March 15 and 16, the team went to Grand Valley for our second district competition. With a new and improved robot, we did great! We even managed to balance our bot on the bridge–more than once! We were also presented the Inspiration in Engineering award for our help in starting FIRST Tech Challenge for Middle Schoolers in Michigan. We had an FTC field set up in the lobby for people to come check out, and plenty of information for kids, parents, and mentors to starts their own FTC team.
Alongside representing FTC, we had a table for donations to our friends at Lutheran Child Family Services. Thanks to all the awesome people attending the competition, we received a large amount of donations. Thank you to everyone who helped out!
