Supporting Michigan Black River Public School’s FIRST Robotics Teams
The FIRST Robotics program provides students with mechanical, electrical, computing, and team-building skills as a way of preparing them for future careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) fields. Through collaborative efforts, students work together to design and build robots to complete a series of challenges at competitions held throughout the year.

In 2023, LG Energy Solution Michigan sponsored two middle school FIRST Robotics teams at Black River Public School. The two LG Energy Solution-backed teams participated in the FIRST Tech Challenge, which aligns with the motto: “Students learn to think like engineers.” Guided by experienced coaches and mentors, participants were given the opportunity to develop STEM skills and practice engineering principles, all the while deepening their understanding of the value of hard work, innovation, and teamwork.

LG Energy Solution Michigan is excited to participate as a sponsor once again in the program this year, with the goal of offering local students chances to improve their STEM abilities.

Elmin, a parent of one of the FIRST Robotics Team members, shared his personal experience with the program, saying, “It’s amazing to see a great company like LG Energy Solution supporting one of the best schools in our area. As a parent, I really appreciate LG Energy Solution’s sponsorship of my son’s FIRST Robotics Team.”

“I would like to thank LG Energy Solution for sponsoring our Black River Robotics team,” said Omar, Elmin’s son. “Having LG Energy Solution as a sponsor motivates our team to create more advanced robots. We’re excited to progress through another year with more innovative solutions.”
