In the fall of 2014, 10 high school students became charter members of Wired Devils, Grosse Ile’s FIRST Robotics Competition team. FIRST, For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology, is an international organizationfor youths.
An old woodshop turned storage room was home to the Wired Devils. These youths were enticed by robots. They were attracted to learning by doing. They looked forward to challenges. They also were not afraid of hard work and long hours.
