Auburn Moutain View Competition update

Bear Metal recently attended a competition at Auburn Mountain View High School. Are robot performed exceptionally well, but due to some minor problems we were placed 7th before alliance selections began.competition #1 image We were picked by the 2nd placed team, 2907 Lion Robotics and our 2nd pick to finish off the alliance was team 3237, The bionic braves. We fought hard and worked as a team, allowing us to win the competition. A special shout out to the Sota bots who gave us their time out so we could fix a problem with one of our alliance’s robots. To round off the event we won the chairman’s award, this season the team spent numerous hours working throughout the community and we are thankful for the chairman’s team’s awesome presentation and essay!  We also are thankful  that our media team put together an amazing chairman’s video!competition #2 image Because we won the chairman’s we have earned a spot at the district finals in Portland. We are also excited to compete in the Mt. Vernon competition next weekend. Just a reminder this tomorrow we will be having our annual spaghetti dinner and auction at tahoma high school, tickets will be available at the door.

Build Season Day # 45

This week we have Mid Winter break so we were able to send some of our students down to team 2557 SotaBots field for a 2nd day in a row. We also tested out collector #2 today, it did not work as well expected but we have some time to improve it. Overall the robot is perfoming amazingly and we are very excited for our first competition next week!
