After some modifications, testing and practice we'll be ready for SVR.  We learned some good lessons at the Sacramento regional, we're getting ready to do even better at the Silicon Valley Regional in San Jose.

The Silicon Valley Regional will be on April 2-4 in the Event Center at San Jose State University.  The schedule is the same as our last competition and is as follows:

2011 Silicon Valley Regional Semi-Finalists

scouting app

April 1st-2nd Spartan Robotics presented their 2011 robot "Havoc" at the Silicon Valley Regional. Sporting the classic lightning decals and maintaining a record of quick-scoring, "Havoc" stood out at the competition. Throughout the course of the Regional event, many repairs and debugging lessons were learned by 971 students, as the team eventually perfected an uber-tube autonomous and a speedy mini-bot. Using Nexus phones donated by sponsor Google, 971 used a slick student-created scouting application throughout all the matches, helping to make alliance selections smoother.
