Tomorrow the team will be having a party hosted by atomic sponsor @salespad to thank all of the sponsors mentors and parents that made our robot this year. Hopefully we will get some good photos and videos of Susan to share with all of you! Thanks again @salespad for giving us your space and time and thanks to all of our other sponsors for making our robot dreams come true.

She is finally done. Sitting at 7.75 feet Susan is complete with a 1 second ground to floor elevator, a turret capable of picking up and placing power cubes on all 4 sides of the robot, a killer cube grabbing mechanism and an emergency actuator for placing and climbing over dead robots. We can’t wait to see you all this year! Don’t forget, it’s not about the robot, and Never stop improving•

We know we haven’t been posting a lot but expect that to change soon. This year we are super excited to present our 2018 bot Susan. She isn’t done in the video obviously because we would really like to be on @firstupdatesnow premier night! Maybe this turret goes faster, maybe not. Let us know what you think down below 👇 #robot #robots #robotics #arcade #80s #firstrobotics #frc #first #team5980 #soexcited #egrrobotics #science #engineering #technology #firstpowerup #defense #offense #drift #drifting #skid #firstupdatesnow #premiernight #turret
A huge thanks to @theeastvision staff member Asha Lewis for the fantastic photos! #hardatwork #dayinthelife #robogang #weloverobots #frc5980
#5980 has one drifty bot this year! This year’s bot is three times faster than our first bot and twice as fast as last year! Believe it or not that’s only 75% speed with two cims. Throwback to a previous post showing the skid marks we leave •

Not a super glamourous shot but we don’t care. We are so excited because yesterday alumnus Ben Strauss visited and helped us set up our @lagunatools IQ cnc machine and prepare us for machining parts for the bot! We have so many photos we want to share with all of our followers but we must wait! One more week until our photos will be ready for viewing! Believe us, they are gonna blow you all away! •

Previously 5980 has struggled with allocating space for our EBoard and positioning it in a way that is easily accessible. This year our goal was to change that. To do so we have created an EBoard that slides out of the robot while maintaining visibility of critical areas from above. •

Throwback to last year when we won West Michigan! Can’t wait for competition season to start! Let’s hope we do as well as last year! •

A huge thanks to @salespad for letting our team use your space this weekend for kickoff! Thanks also goes to our mentors for proving arcade games to entertain ourselves before kickoff and to the parents for the lunch you provided. Good luck to everyone this year!
Our @lagunatools IQ CNC machine arrived! It’s a bit big to fit in our room right now but we can’t wait to use it this upcoming season! Thanks for the donation @egrschoolsfoundation!
