2011: LogoMotion

In honor of the 20th anniversary of FIRST, the game LogoMotion was created.  Teams placed tubes on racks and got more points for creating the FIRST logo.  The AdamBots had one of their most successful seasons in 2011.

Soccer Ball

The AdamBots created a robot to play a soccer-like game called Breakaway.  The AdamBots went to the Kettering and Detroit Districts and the Michigan State Championship.

2009 Kettering District Champions

2009: Lunacy

The 2009 FIRST season simulated the surface of the moon with a low friction / low gravity environment. The AdamBots had an extraordinary season winning a district, coming in second at another and making it all the way to Atlanta.

2008 Drive Team

2008: FIRST Overdrive

The 2008 FIRST season was a NASCAR-like game with a goal to move around the track as rapidly as possible while herding trackballs. We got picked (as alliance partners) at both regionals we went to and also won the website award twice!

2005 FIRST Championship

2005: Triple Play
