We learned so much, made many adjustments and improvements, collaborated and networked with many teams and are grateful for all the support from our coaches, mentors, community and sponsors who made this experience possible. A big thank you to Alliance 4 Captain Paw Paw High School FIRST Robotics Team #5462 2pawR and Team 1918 NC Gears for picking us to be part of their alliance! We had an awesome run and made it to the semi-finals!
We are honored to be the recipients of the Engineering Inspiration Award and will be representing the St. Joseph District in this category at the Michigan State Championship in April!
