Greetings from team 10037, the M.A.R.S. Mini Rovers!
We are a non-profit FTC (FIRST Tech Challenge) team of middle school kids based in Muskegon, Michigan. Each year we design, build, test, and program a robot to compete in a two-versus-two competition with other robots constructed by similar teams. The competition has different game pieces and objectives each year, but it is always played on a 12′ x 12′ square field.
We are also responsible for creating an Engineering Notebook each year, which details the process by which we created that year’s robot, along with any failures and successes we had during the process.
We love building robots, learning, and we have a blast while doing it! Mike Reynolds, Matt Reynolds, Harrison McIntyre, Ziod Bou-Fakhreddine, Tyler Prim, and Kristen Barthel are the mentors for the FTC team.
