This weekend the GreengineerZ attended the Western Michigan Robotics Invitation in Zeeland, MI. We achieved our primary objective of introducing new team members to a FIRST robotics event. This provides them with some practical context of what goes on during the competitions.
GreengineerZ Accepted to IRI
The GreengineerZ are proud to announce that we have been accepted to IRI! (Indiana Robotics invitational) This has been a goal for our team for quite some time. IRI is composed of top tier teams who have been carefully selected. There will be teams from all over the United States attending as well as teams from Canada and Mexico. Although this is very exciting for us we need your help!
In the 2017 season, we had a new head coach, had to switch build sites twice during build season, and had a team of only 9 high school students. Despite the odds, the GreengineerZ won their second district event (LSSU District), was the captain of the 3rd alliance in our division at the Michigan State District Championship, won Tesla Division as the 4th alliance captain at the World Championship, got to play on the overall championship field (St. Louis Einstein), and ranked in the top 1% of teams in the entire world! Sadly we are running low on funds due to our struggles and accomplishments of our past season. We would love to represent our community, learn about other teams, and share our knowledge. Our team would appreciate any donation as we continue to grow. If we do not reach our goal, all funds will be used to support our 2018 season. Anything helps, thank you!
