The First Robotics Competition Season 2019 Game theme was Destination Deep Space. Our objective was to place poly-carbonate hatch covers and orange rubber balls or “cargo” on rockets and cargo ships before returning to their HAB platform to climb at the end of the match.
We won third place at the Peachtree District State Competition along with the Innovation in Control Award.
We won first place in the Forsyth District event.
We participated in our Newton Division qualifiers at the FRC World Competitions in Houston, Texas.
This year's First Robotics Competition theme was Power Up. The game had a retro 8-bit theme and teams were required to place milk crates, or “power cubes”, on large balancing scales to tip the scale and gain ownership. Alliances could also trade power cubes for power-ups, giving them a temporary advantage in a match. At the end of the match, robots could climb the tower attached to the centre balancing scale using a rung attached to the tower, giving them additional points.
Creativity and Innovation Award
We won this award sponsored by Xerox at the BEST robotics competition creating an interactive booth and presenting in front of a board of judges.
We won the PCH 2018 Duluth District competition!
After our success in the regional BEST competition, we moved on to state competition.
The 2017 First Robotics Competition’s theme was Steamworks which featured steampunk. This year's objective was to shoot wiffle balls which represent fuel into a simulated boiler which transfers the generated steam into an airship in the middle of the field. Each alliance had one airship, which they pressurize with steam from the boiler and load with plastic gears from the field. At the end of the match, robots could climb and hang on ropes attached to the airship for additional points.
We placed 5th in this competition at the Georgia Best competition.
Our team ended as a semi-finalist at the State Competition.
We attended the First Robotics World Competition in Houston Texas!
The theme for the 2016 season for the First Robotics Competition was Stronghold. The game was played by two alliances of up to three teams each, and involved breaching the opponents’ defenses, known as outer work as well as capturing their tower by first firing “boulders” (small foam balls) at it, and then surrounding or scaling the tower using a singular rung on the tower wall. Points were scored by crossing elements of the tower’s outer works, shooting boulders into the opposing tower’s five goals in order to lower the tower strength, and by surrounding and scaling the tower.
Innovation and Control
District Finalists Kennesaw
We placed 3rd in this year's Georgia Best Competition.
We won this award sponsored by Rockwell Automation for using an innovative control system and application of control components – electrical, mechanical, or software – to provide unique machine functions!
We were a finalist at this event in 2015.
The 2015 First Robotics Competition theme was Recycle Rush. It involved picking up and stacking totes on scoring platforms, putting pool noodles (“litter”) inside recycling containers, and putting the containers on top of scoring stacks of totes.
We attended the Georgia Southern Classic Regional.
In this competition we got to be an alliance captain, we won the spirit award, and we placed third! Go, team!
We placed 3rd in this competition
First Robotics Competition’s theme for the 2014 season was Arial Assist. This game was set up as a volleyball game between robots with one ally and two opposing teams. The team with the most points gained by catching the ball, placing it in a designated goal, or taking balls from the opposing teams.
Peachtree Judges Award
We won the First Robotics Peachtree Regional Judges Award, awarded to us by a panel of judges for displaying unique efforts, performance, and dynamics.
We placed 2nd at this regional event
This was our first year competing! A group of high schoolers came together to create a robot and a team that would last for years to come.
