MEET OuR ROBOT

Meet our robot! This year's robot features custom designed and custom made parts, including the drive train, the intake mechanism, and the outtake mechanism. Our intake mechanism, which has spring loaded wheels, allows us to intake at any angle. Our outtake mechanism, with a unique stringing mechanism and claw, allows us to stack 12 blocks high. Odometry pods mounted in our drive train gives us a reliable autonomous.

Google Qualifier 12/14/19

For our first qualifier of the season, we were very successful on the playing field, as we went undefeated, set the NorCal record for points scored, and were the winning alliance captain. We also won the inspire award, as our hard work on the outreach and business side of things paid off as well. We had a great time at this event and hope to continue our success moving into the Sacred Heart Qualifier on 1/11/19.

Sacred heart Qualifier 01/11/20

In our second and last qualifier of this season, we set the NorCal record for most points scored without a penalty, and had a record of 9-1. We won the Design Award, courtesy of the brilliant and hardworking minds on our build team. Our three stone auto and nine-stone stacking capability proved to be very useful throughout the competition. Unfortunately, our robot did break in the last finals match, but we were able to push through the challenge, and our alliance won. Many thanks to RoboAvatar! We look forward to competing again at Regionals. 

NorCal Championship 3/7-3/8

In the 2020 NorCal Regional Championship, we were able to advance as the Winning Alliance Captain, as well as the recipient of the Design Award. We were first seed in the Gold Division and allianced with team #8404, Quixsilver, and team #16236, Juice to go on to win the event. We extend our most gracious thanks to our alliance partners, as we could not have done this without them. Here, our new improved outtake system and capstone allowed our alliance to double cap in multiple matches, breaking the California record numerous times with a high score of 145. We look forward to competing at the FIRST World Championships in Houston in April.
