This story begins with a group of laid back and confused freshmen paired with a laid back and confused teacher. Through heated discussions and disagreements, the team managed to settle on a small lift robot that had trouble scoring in the double digits. At their first competition, the freshmen went 5-2 due to their determination and a little bit of luck. Their next competition at Neuqua Valley proved less fortunate, not moving on after the qualifying round. The team returned to the workshop and decided to double down on their efforts. Against all odds, they had decided to completely scrap their current robot and build a new one from scratch... IN THREE WEEKS!
After some last minute redesigns and a scramble to get their robot working, our Freshmen team, 2360X, managed to get their newly christened single flywheel shooting balls in the high goal. With their new design, the team was able to secure a 17th place spot after qualifying. They were picked during the first round of alliance selection and managed to make it to the semi-finals before being knocked out. The full results can be found here.
The team also managed to eek out a score high enough to qualify them for the U.S. National Competition in programming skills. The results of that can be found here.
Congratulations to Dylan Green, Maanav Iyengar, Praval Telagi, Zahra Khalid, Clarice Reeves, and last but not least, Eshwar Pitchiah.
A big thanks to the rest of the roboteers who helped run the tournament.
