First Tech Challenge 2015-2016

Overview: This year we sent a group of engineers to compete in FIRST STRONGHOLD located at Valencia High School in Placentia.

Goals: We wanted to be the best rookie team competing in the competition while striving to achieve a relatively high scoring.

Plan: The team built a robot that performed a specific function that would allow the team to score points consistently.

Results: After several weeks into building, the team was not able to build a robot to complete all of the objectives required to score points in the competition. Instead, the team decided to build a "support" robot capable of breaching the defenses and hand balls over to alliance members. At the competition, the team was able to do fairly well, managing to be a consistent "support" robot. The robot passed through the lowbar efficiently and challenged the tower several times. At the end of the competition, the team placed 28th out of 42 teams.
