Team 5980 is with @steelcase at @neocon_shows this week! Steelcase is featuring new Maker Space furniture and decided to feature our 2016 bot along with FRC inspired wall drawings and previous game pieces! Thank you so much for the opportunity to show off our bot and represent FRC to so many people! •

We know it’s been just over a week now since #detroitchamps but we just wanted to take a moment to appreciate our alliance captain on #TeslaField @grr340 and our partners @bigbadbob319 and @frc238 thanks for being the first alliance to pick us at the championship! We can’t wait to see you guys again in the future •

“No man is more important than the team. No coach is more important than the team. The Team, The Team, The Team, and if we think that way, all of us, everything that you do, you take into consideration what effect does it have in my Team? You will never play for a Team again. You’ll play for this. You’ll play for that. You’ll play for everything except the team, and think what a great thing it is to be a part of something that is, The Team. We’re gonna win it. We’re gonna believe in each other, we’re not gonna criticize each other, we’re not gonna talk about each other , we’re gonna encourage each other. “ •

We’re going to worlds in Detroit! So excited to have to opportunity to complete for our third year in a row, but we are more excited that our founding team @trisonics_4003 won the state championship as the alliance captain! Anyone that knows a thing or two about Michigan bots, knows these guys are a force to be reckoned with this year. 🤟💪 •

Team #5980 had a rough first competition and we were put in a place where we didn’t think qualifying for the district championship was a possibility. After fighting as hard as possible at our second competition we more than tripled our district points and are we are officially qualified for MSC on Wednesday! Good luck to everyone that will be there and we can’t wait to see you all. •

East Grand Rapids has a tradition of excellence, and one could say that FRC 5980 exemplifies this with another finalist win and Quality Award at West Michigan today. But the unspoken truth is that every sweet moment of success is built on failure. For every time of screaming, cheering, hugging your teammates after a win there’s a time of doubt, of despair, of wondering who you are and why you’re doing this and will it ever take you anywhere. In the end, though, we all know there’s nothing more real and more rewarding than #FIRSTRobotics and no sports team that’s more like family than #FRC5980. There’s nothing better than congratulating the team who you beat last year and who beat you this year (@trisonics_4003). There’s nothing better than seeing your fellow classmates and parents and alliance partners and team alumni and sponsors and coaches all there supporting you. Robotics is a roller coaster of surprise ups and downs; it’s one of the most real, gritty, and human things you can experience. #GoTeam5980 but more importantly #GoFIRST, #GoFRC, and #GoFIRSTinMichigan because honestly we are all so lucky and so grateful for each and every second of this experience — we are not deserving. #thankyou
Fun locker decorations to get hyped for West Michigan (and because we are a sports team 😉💪)
