FIRST Robotics Competition

This year we ran the first ever FIRST Robotics Showcase at Sturgis Falls.  This showcase featured teams from all four FIRST programs.  Overall, all of the teams were showing what opportunities people can receive from getting involved in a FIRST team.  Because there were teams from all four FIRST programs in one room, people could see the progression of the FIRST programs.  Teams also explained what they learned throughout their seasons.  A FIRST LEGO League Jr. team showed their LEGO model featuring the relationship between bees and bears.  Two FIRST LEGO League teams ran the robots that they built and programmed.  There also was a NXT robot that people could learn how to program.  Several FTC teams demonstrated their robots and taught people how to drive them.  Finally, multiple FRC teams (including our team) demonstrated their robots.  Throughout the afternoon, we ran matches on half of a field.  We even brought an airship!  Throughout the day, we answered any questions that people had and helped anyone who was interested learn about joining a FIRST team.
