Clubs & Activities

Featured Club: FIRST Robotics Team

Beginning with the 2018-19 school year, Lansing Catholic joined FIRST Robotics of Michigan. Under the guidance of coach and LCHS Biology teacher Mike Olds, the team competed in two competitions and learned a lot in their first year. Below are a few lessons that two of our returning members took away from their rookie year with FIRST.

"FIRST Robotics was a great experience for me last year. At first it was intimidating, but our club had a great welcoming environment, and even when we got to the competitions, many other teams welcomed us and gave us a helping hand on our last minute preparations. One thing I learned was that simple is often better, and that you should focus on doing what you can do well.The more things you add the more things there are that can fail and fall apart, so we focused on doing what we could do efficiently. Most importantly FIRST Robotics was a welcoming environment for me to live out one of the dreams of many little boys, to build a robot."
- Stephen C21

When I first heard about FIRST Robotics it seemed like very intimidating program, but arriving at the venue for our first meet changed my point of view. As soon as we stepped through the door several people were waiting to greet us. The environment that was created by both the staff and other teams was amazing, and it helped me gain a healthy competitive spirit, as well as increasing my confidence in my team and our abilities to do our best. Most importantly, FIRST taught me that no matter where you come from if you have some parts, tools, and a team with crazy ideas and creativity, you can have a great time.
