About Us

We are the E-Ville Empire, Team 5216 based in Essexville, Michigan. Our team has been around for six years and counting. Over those years, we have placed highly in most of our competitions, making it to worlds twice. The students on the team all attend Garber High School and work countless hours to improve and perfect the robot with close to no help from the mentors. The program is non-profit and is made entirely to help give students an idea of what there is to offer in the STEM field. We look forward to many more years of competition to kick some nuts and bolts!

Our Mission

Our Robotics Team mission is to generate interest and develop skills in the fields of engineering, science and technology in our local community. We strive to be an open and inclusive FIRST Robotics team so that we are welcoming to all interested members of our school community. We strive to become involved with our junior high FIRST Tech Challenge team and build upon the experience of our elementary students who participated in the FIRST Lego League (FLL).
