April 24 – 27, Detroit hosts the FIRST Robotics Competition Championship and Ypsilanti’s STEMM Middle College Grizzly Robotics team will be among the competitors. The Grizzly’s received the Regional Chairman’s Award, the highest award given at the State Championships which took place April 10 – 13 in Saginaw, Michigan. The award earned the Grizzly’s an automatic bid into the World Championships.

FIRST — which is an acronym for For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology — wants to help students thrive in a high-tech world with an unbridled passion for skilled trades, engineering, programming, and corporate problem-solving.

Congratulations, Grizzly Robotics and to all the teams competing next weekend.
