FLL Teams!

We are super excited to announce the formation of two FIRST LEGO League Teams, Team 44451 The WorHawks and Team 44452 The HawkBots! They are going to be building at Worthington Hills Elementary School and The WorBots are stoked about being able to mentor and guide these future engineers. We welcome you to the FIRST community and hope this is a place where you can grow, and grow, and grow!

 

Turning Pens, Giving Back

The WorBots were able to participate in the annual event called Turn for Troops at a local shop called Woodcraft. We made pens, wrote notes, and now, they are going to be given to veterans going on the Honor Flight, or soldiers serving abroad. Thank you to all the men and women who sacrificed so much so that we can have our freedom. These pens show only a little of the appreciation we have for you! 🇺🇸

Middle School Robotics Competition

Well done to all of the middle school robotics kids for competing in the first annual middle school robotics competition! Thank you all for participating! And thank you to the WorBots for helping to run the competition. We love seeing the future WorBots grow! Also a special shout out to the brand new FTC Team #16284 The 8-Bit Bandits! Congratulations on joining the FIRST community!

 

WorBots Buckeye Regional WINNERS

Congratulations to the WorBots for winning the Buckeye Regional two years in a row! This qualifies us to attend the Championships competition in Detroit, Michigan! We are super excited to go to Detroit again to compete with so many other amazing teams. Special shoutout to Team 48 E.L.I.T.E. and Team 4028 The Beak Squad for picking us to be on their alliance. We couldn’t have done it without you guys! See you at CHAMPIONSHIPS!!

Rookie Competition Finale!

This year, in order to get the rookies integrated into our team, we presented them with a challenge in which they had to build a robot to place basketballs into hoops of different heights. They had to have an autonomous period that put a ball into a hoop, a teleop period to give the new members a chance to drive, and only about 4 weeks to build it. With the guidance of our mentors, the rookies did amazing! They were able to program an autonomous period, pick up the basketballs, and score in the different hoops! To celebrate their success, we held our first annual WorBots Pancake Day in which the team seniors made pancakes for everyone! The pancakes were amazing, especially after all of the hard work that was put in! Congratulations to our hardworking rookies! We look forward to your contribution in our upcoming FIRST Deep Space season!

WINNERS at Buckeye Regional

We are the CHAMPIONS! We are extremely excited to announce that we were the Winners of the 2018 Buckeye Regional. We were the Head Alliance Captain of the 4th Seeded Alliance with teams 3314 and 5030, The Mechanical Mustangs and The Second Mouse, respectively. This is the first time our team has won a Regional Event. Because we were awarded a Wild Card at the Greater Pittsburgh Regional, our win generated another Wild Card to be given to Team 379, the Robocats. We won against the 2nd Seeded alliance in the tie-breaker match. It was exhilarating! Thank you so much to everyone who came and was a part of our AWESOME cheering section!
