Muskegon Regional Competition

 In partnership with L3 Technologies, the M.A.R.S. Rovers are pleased to be hosting a regional FRC competition for the first time ever in our own Muskegon, Michigan! The competition will take place at Orchard View High School (see below for location) from March 14-16, 2019. With 40 teams already applied to attend, over 400 students, and over 2000 spectators, it’s sure to be an exciting event you won’t want to miss!

We are still in the process of recruiting volunteers, sponsors, and other participants to join us. If you’d like to volunteer at or sponsor this event, contact us! We welcome any and all skill levels and contributions.
