Chezy Champs

best in the west

971 is looking forward to getting Geoffrey, our 2017 Stronghold robot back on the playing field to compete with teams from up and down the west coast.

This weekend, September 24th and 25th, we will be competing at Chezy Champs, a local off season event at Bellarmine College Prep. 

MV Technology Showcase

We will be one of the exhibitors at the 2017 Mountain View Technology Showcase.

There are currently 25 Mountain View Technology companies who will be exhibitors.  The showcase takes place on Thursday, August 11th from 11am to 2pm at the Mountain View civic plaza on Castro Street.

There will be lots to see as well as food trucks there to get lunch at.

971 Open House

Join us on Sunday, June 5th from 1-5pm for an open house in our lab at MVHS.  


On to St. Louis - Hopper Division

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.

Heading to SVR

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)

Ready for Davis

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.


Kickoff 2016

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.

Chezy Champs!!

As always, Chezy Champs was a fun competition.  There were great teams there in a relaxed and fun environment.

Getting ready for the Off-Season

3rd robot assembly

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.

MV Technology Showcase

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.
