Decked out in patriotic mismatched red and blue bumpers, Louie had a great time celebrating Independence Day with the East Grand Rapids community. #frc5980 #4thofjuly #egr #east #gaslightvillage #first #frc #robotics #team5980
Team 5980 had a fabulous time at the East Grand Rapids 4th of July parade! We drove Louie, this year's robot, shot balls, threw candy and popsicles, decorated the scissor lift of our rookie year robot, and showed off our banners and signs. Thanks to the EGR community for being so supportive and enthusiastic! We are proud to represent this very special community. 😃

With the guidance of our mentor @david_s_price, team 5980 has decided to take a leadership role in mentoring a @f1rstglobal team from Niamey, Niger this summer. This team is composed of two girls, one boy, and one mentor: Rafiqua (16), Abdoul-Aziz (17), Aida (15), and Moumouni. We have been communicating with them via WhatsApp and Skype. Although drastic time differences and connectivity issues make communication difficult, we have managed to aid them in discerning uses for their robot’s “arm” as well as fixing code bugs that have caused them to lose control of their robot at the end of autonomous mode. The entire team has become involved in this venture and we are excited to cheer Team Niger on when they compete in Washington D.C. in July. #team5980 #frc5980 #firstglobal #niger #africa
