THE FIRST OF MANY
The season started off in a mad rush to come up with as many ideas and designs to accomplish the task at hand. We were very eager, as it was our first year to design a cool robot. We had many different ideas for ball controller, ranging from simple conveyer belts to complicated air-powered cannons. Needless to say, it was difficult to find a good design that we could all agree on. The next four weeks were a blur of building aluminum parts, delivery pizza, and a final scramble to the finish.
1st Season- Aerial Assist
Our season was extremely successful for a rookie year. At our first event, the Granite State District event in New Hampshire, we ranked 15th and were selected to be in alliance in the elimination rounds and went on to the quarter finals. We nabbed Rookie All-Star, Highest Rookie Seed, and the Underwriter Laboratories Industrial Safety Award. At our next event at WPI, we placed 4th in the standings for qualification matches, and as a result, qualified to be an alliance captain. We also received the Highest Rookie Seed award and fit the requirements to attend the New England Regional event in Boston where we went on to win the Rookie Inspiration Award.
Spreading the Love for Stem
Following our very successful first season as a rookie team, we have been working to bring the message of FIRST to our community. We are now mentoring two FIRST Lego League (FLL) teams at the Billerica Recreation Department (the Billerica Bots and the Billerica Microbots), a FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) team at the Marshall Middle School, and a VEX team at the Locke Middle School and . It is our pride and practice as a FIRST robotics team to spread the word about the FIRST organization, and cultivate a love for STEM subjects for our future generations.
