We have just finished a very successful competition season after working several weeks building our robot. This year, our goal was to create a simple yet robust robot. Being a smaller team with many new students, we decided to build within our capabilities and do it well, which is exactly what we did. And we were even more successful than we hoped. Although our official competition season is over, we have plans for many summer activities. We have hopes to do multiple different workshops for both programming and building to allow everyone opportunities to grow their skills for next year.
2020 Late Season Update
As we progress through the build season, considerable progress has been made. Build is nearing completion, Programming has produced more code, Web has further organized the website, and Imagery has created new
team shirts and robot designs. Click here to see the full update.
2020 Mid-Season Update
Through these vigorous few build weeks we brainstormed many unique ideas. Examples include wheel hands to help our robot climb and stabilize itself, a conveyor to carry and shoot balls (power cells), and large pneumatic wheels to ensure our robot can drive over bumps.

2020 Preseason Update
As the Build Season kicks off here is a mini overview of everything that happened over the pre-season.
Sixth Week Update
As build season comes to a close, we have been working even harder to complete all details of the robot and perfect coding before bag and tag. With our drive team chosen we will begin doing field testing with our final robot and plan for drive practice.
Fifth Week Update
As we finish week five of our mission, we are nearing the deadline. We continue to work on the final robot and programming for the electro-aquarium, along with many other things.
Fourth Week Update
We continue our mission during our fourth week of build season; working on the final robot and programming for the electro-aquarium.
Third Week Update
We continue on our mission on our third week of build season. We are half way there….well time wise anyway. The team has finished the prototype robot and we have begun working on the final robot.
Second Week Update
We continue with our mission during the second week of build season. The team continues in the groove of the work schedule and is working on prototyping while simultaneously working on the final robot chassis and working on activities for competition.
First Week Update
After watching kick off, the team got straight to brainstorming ideas for the robot and began building prototype mechanisms. We also signed up for subgroups and split up with different schedules to get progress on different elements of the robot and team.
Kick off Update
After the few months of doing community service for the town and guiding the new members with tool training, Kickoff has finally reached us! Kick off is the game reveal for the FIRST FRC competition season. Here’s what we did during Kickoff on Saturday and Sunday!
Fall Festivities Update
Although the team has returned to school and work schedules, we have focused our time to help out our community and prepare for the upcoming season! We immediately started fall with tool training, fundraising, team building, and other helpful preparations.
Back to School Update
As the school year began, the team steps out with recruitment with post-competition events around the community.
End of Year Update
As the season wraps up, our team remains busier than ever with post-competition events around the community. The team continues to work on new build, recruitment projects, and make their presence known in Windsor.
Well this is it!!! We made it a long way this year, and just had our last competition for the 2017-2018 season. We’ll get to the competition, but first a quick recap of what we’ve been up to the last few weeks…
