Woman’s Life & Algonac Robotics Little Library Community Project

They are finally installed and ready to be used!

These are the first Little Library installed in the city of Algonac. They are located at the Algonac boardwalk in the flower bed by the flagpole.

The Algonac Robotics would like to thanks the Woman’s Life Chapter 883 for letting us be part of this project. They purchased and donate the little Library and our students and coaches painted the wall, the inside and install a rook to protect their content. Special thank you to Cindy Babisz for coordinating with us and the city so they can be installed in this amazing location.

Kathy Tricomo, a local teacher and published author, did the finishing touches by painting the beautiful artwork. One of the library has mermaid and the other one depict a story featuring the cat in the hat and its robots making messes.

So come on Algonac, pick a book, drop a book and enjoy !!!!

1st Annual Garage Sale

2016-08-20_10-42-44

It was a success!

Thanks to all team members that came and help out, we raised $1480.00 during the Yard Trail Sale. Locations was perfect and weather was just a tad too wet!!!!   but it worked out just fine!

A huge thank you to everyone that donated items for the sale… your donations all together made a great impact on our team budget, we really appreciate it.

This was a lot of work, but at the end, it was a great opportunity for a lot of people to familiarize themselves with our team.

Almost all donated items were sold, remaining few were donated to the local goodwill store.

Start collecting items !!!!   the more we have, the better it will be!

Mark your calendar for next year, we will most likely do this again! If we do we will be doing Friday and Saturday only,  August 11-12th 2017.

2016 Algonquin Elementary Engineering Fair

The Algonac Robotics was present and demo our robots to the attendees.

We had a table setup with a monitor to watch the videos of our matches at the Marysville Districts.

It was a great opportunity to share and show younger kids and parents what this team is all about.

Here is the posting from their Facebook page!

“The Algonac Robotics team made a top notch presentation to the club at today’s meeting. Their accomplishments as Rookie teams (FTC #9819 Algonac Roborats and FRC # 5860 Algonac Full Metal Muskrats) show that their hard work ethic, engineering, organizational, business, and programming skills will provide a bright future for these kids! We also learned about “Gracious professionalism” and how they are working with other teams in the area with the Blue alliance. We look forward to working with them! www.algonacrobotics.com
