College – U. Got It?

Welcome to The CollegeBound Network

Screen Shot 2014-09-25 at 4.13.47 PMWith a name like “Robodawgs,” it’s no wonder this high school robotics team is gaining national attention. The Grandville High School team is touted as one of the most accomplished teams in the country to build competitive robots that drive, fly, cruise the surface of lakes and rivers, dive underwater, and soar into the stratosphere.


No joke… check out the picture of the Robodawg’s high-altitude research balloon (below)! It’s expected to achieve long distance sustained flight through neutral buoyancy for the first time ever.

Also cool: The Robodawgs’ entry in the fastest autonomous boat race in America, featured on MLIVE, (pictured below), or its football cannon robot — yes, a cannon! — which they presented at the Grandville High School Homecoming (also below).

More than 700 students from 4th through 12th grades participate on Grandville robotics teams, designing, building, and programming robotics for competitions around the world.
