In the time since our last post, we have gone to two regionals!
Our robot, L Evader, made it to 36th place of 43 teams at the San Francisco Regional and 46th out of 60 at the Silicon Valley Regional. While we didn’t make playoffs at either competition, we had a lot of fun at both. At SVR, we even controlled a scale for an entire match by placing a single cube on it, since no other teams tried to challenge us! The video of the match can be found here. Our robot takes the scale 20 seconds in.
We’ve also begun our SMART Outreach Program! On Saturdays, 8th graders come to our team and learn about us. The second meeting will take place tomorrow, Saturday the 21st. The meeting will teach the 8th graders about Programming and Electronics.
That’s it for now.
