The team is off to an awesome start so far! Kickoff revealed the exciting 2017 FRC game: STEAMWORKS! Our team immediately began brainstorming solutions to all the challenges within the game. This week has been dedicated to CAD modeling, prototyping, and testing. We’ve seen lots of great ideas and are hopeful that they’ll become realities soon enough. The pictures below show just how eager everyone has been to get working. Go WorBots!
Our team has had an extremely successful competition season this spring! We progressed from failing to make it to playoffs at Buckeye to being Finalists at Queen City and States, the latter being hosted at our very own Worthington Kilbourne High School (WKHS). Our experience in Cleveland was met with a lot of disappointment, but it served to motivate the team to do better in Cincinnati, where we placed second on an alliance with FRC teams 4028 and 3324. These competitions were barely two weeks apart, but this improvement displayed the tremendous growth experienced by team members. The Queen City results allowed us to compete in the Ohio State Championship, an event which we were privileged to host at WKHS. Our team served as captain for the second alliance, we chose to compete with FRC teams 5413, 4121, and 4283, and we completed the event as Finalists again! We would like to extend thanks to everyone who competed with us this spring, and we wish good luck to anyone who still has off-season events. We would also like to thank all of the parents, mentors, and students who dedicated their time to our team this year. We’re excited to attend CORI in late June, and we hope to continue improving.
Tuesday marked the completion of our competition robot for FRC Stronghold 2016! We are very happy with how it has turned out and are excited for our regional events. For more images, see the 2016 FRC Build Season Gallery; it contains pictures of the build process, from January 9 to February 23. For more information about our robot’s capabilities, please comment or contact us.
Thanks to some savvy Photoshoppers, we now have a team standard for FRC Stronghold 2016! This picture will be made into a real flag that we will take to competition and put over our drive station during matches.
Last Saturday, on February 6, our first official WorBots VEX team went to competition! Everyone worked very hard and had a great time learning about robotics. The team advanced to the quarter finals and finished with a 7th place skill ranking in a field of 26 teams. We are extremely proud!
The winner of the $400.00 Amazon gift card has been chosen! Congratulations to Phillip White; we hope you enjoy spending it!
