We’re hosting a competition!

WELCOME

We are Team 4004, the M.A.R.S. (Muskegon Area Robotics Students) Rovers. We are a FIRST Robotics Team based in Muskegon, Michigan. Each year we are given the parameters for a game to be played with our robot and we have six weeks to design, build and program the robot to play the game with others from around the state. But in those six weeks we do that and so much more.

Yesterday the team met another family who has twin boys that require assistance with walking. They own one electric jeep that’s not functional at the moment that we’re going to fix for them. We will also modify it to be a joystick drive since they don’t have the strength and coordination to turn the steering wheel.

We are looking for donations to purchase a second jeep for them and then do the same modifications to it so that each of the boys will be able to ride their own jeep soon. If you’d like to help out please contact us or send us a message through messenger.

These guys are so adorable and happy. We can’t wait to see their faces when they each have their own cars.

As the M.A.R.S. Rovers are preparing to host the Muskegon Robotics Competition next March, we are looking to obtain 3-4 large screen TVs (around 40"+) to use as displays for statistics etc at the event. If you are in the market for a new TV or are planning to upgrade your existing one with the Black Friday sales coming up, keep us in mind. There will be money in the budget for these so we don’t need them free of charge but we won’t say no to a donated TV of course. Thank you. See MoreSee Less

Calling all M.A.R.S. fans. We need your help in finding a few good people to act as judges at the FIRST Robotics competition that our team is hosting next March!

One of the responsibilities we are facing as organizers is to find judges to work at the competition. While we are especially looking for engineers, we do need judges with expertise in several different areas.

If you are well versed in any of the following areas (or know someone who is) and are interested in spending two fun-filled days with AMAZING kids please PM us with your name and e-mail and we’ll send you a link to our application process.

We need people who can offer encouragement and criticism in the areas of:
Mechanical Engineering
Technical Engineering
Electrical Engineering
Computer Programming
Software
Vision
Financial
Budgeting
Community Outreach

Thank you!
