Customer Spotlight: High School FIRST Robotics Team Increases Accountability and Collaboration Using GQueues

The Robo Raiders are a team of 13 high school students in Mascoutah, Illinois, who compete in FIRST Robotics. Along with the support of adult mentors they've worked hard to plan, design, build, and drive robots that have helped them win several prestigious awards since they began competing in 2009.

For many years, the Robo Raiders organized their work and communicated about their progress via email. In 2016, Jason Rahm, one of the team’s primary mentors, noticed things were getting missed by students, and mentors were struggling to help students be accountable for their work. When Jason discovered GQueues, he knew right away that the collaborative features, simple structure and Google integrations made it a perfect solution for their team.

GQueues has helped the team manage their time better and allowed mentors to relax knowing that students will get notifications and deadline reminders so they won’t miss anything. According to team member, Ava Merrifield, “By having everything right there in front of me, I’m able to see all of my tasks and their due dates, so I know what I need to work on and prioritize first.”
