We were regional finalists at SVR and are now working hard to get ready for the Championship event in St. Louis.
We will be competing on the Hopper division at the Championship. There are some other good teams on that field including 1678, Citrus Circuits from Davis CA, so there should be some exciting matches.
We had a successful weekend in Davis and are looking to competing again soon. On April 8th and 9th, we will be at the San Jose State Event Center at the Silicon Valley FIRST Robotics Regional.
(FIRST stands for For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology)
The team will be leaving this Wednesday to head for Davis.
The competition will be held in the UC Davis ARC Pavilion March 23rd-26th.
A detailed schedule as well as other event information can be found here.
The 2016 season has begun! On January 9th, 37 students and 30 mentors and parents joined us for the season kickoff.
The game this year is entitled Stronghold and has a castle theme. Teams need to cross four out of five barriers twice each to breach their opponents defenses and shoot “boulders” into an opponent’s castle to weaken it in order to capture it at the end of the match.
As always, Chezy Champs was a fun competition. There were great teams there in a relaxed and fun environment.
Our "third robot" is almost ready to go.
We are getting ready for the off-season competitions. On September 19-20 will will be competing at Chezy Champs at Bellarmine College Prep and on October 2-3 we will be competing at CalGames at Lynbrook High School.
We were able to make our robot using our new CNC Router.
On August 13th, we showed off our robot alongside other Mountain View Technology companies.
We had a great opportunity to be part of the Mountain View Technology Showcase in the City Hall Plaza. Local companies such as Google, LinkedIn, Knightscope, and Boosted had booths and demos. It was exciting to be included as part of the local technology. It was such a success that this may be the first of many such events in the city of Mountain View.
Well, the season is officially over and what a season it was.
There was tough competition at the Silicon Valley Regional but we earned a spot to the Championship Event in St. Louis.
