About Our Team

Our Mission Statement: Rockem Sockem is striving to be the best, student led and empowered robot building team in the world while having a great time. Our players learn to become leaders from being engaged in the build process, being mentored by industry professionals and receiving hands-on experience. We provide value to our sponsors by creating the link between education and industry and by providing them with exposure to new audiences.

Our Team's short-term goal is to win the FIRST® State and World Championships, but our long term-goal is skill development, scholarships for our team members, and helping our teammates to reach their personal, educational and professional goals. Our long-term community goals include expanding FIRST® program and pool of teams within the L'Anse Creuse school district and surronding area as well as working to imrpove the lives of people within the community that we serve

Student Lead Team

The biggest goal every year is to have students lead and run the team. We want our students to be able to explain to any professional engineer what they did, why they did it, what parts were used, and sound like pros all at the same time. Our students know the robot inside and out because they build it from start to finish. While we have advisors and mentors, we make sure the students do the work, while the mentors teach and guide.

Our History

We are a High School Robotics Team out of the L'anse Creuse School District. Our team is made up of 9th - 12th grade students and is coached and mentored by industry professionals and former L'anse Creuse alumni. The team began back in 2000. Since then, we have continued to compete almost every year in Michigan as well as nationally. Click the button below for more info

L'Anse Creuse Schools

Our team is made up of students from the entire L'Anse Creuse Public Schools district in Macomb County. We also allow sending schools that have agreements with our Tech Center to join as well. Starting this year we also have a Middle School after-school robotics program. For more info, contact us using the info at the bottom of this page.
