About Us

We are the Martians FIRST Robotics Team 494 from Goodrich, Michigan. Our team was started in 2001 by Pat Major and Jay Tenbrink who are still mentors on the team today. We are unique because we also have a sister team, More Martians Team 70. As sister teams, we build our robots together but compete separately. Our Goodrich Robotics family also includes Jr FLL,  FLL and FTC teams that our high school students proudly support and mentor.  The mission of our team is to learn, have fun, and have a positive impact on the community through our participation in FIRST.
