Here is a video of our team in action!
The Robocubs officially qualified for the World Championship! We ended up being ranked 60th in the state! We are looking forward to competing at the World Championship!
The Robocubs performed well at the State Championship this weekend. Our robot, code, and driving continued to improve throughout the event and they closed out the event with three strong wins and outstanding performance from our robot. We are hopefully going to qualify for Worlds as we placed 33rd at the State Championship.
They announced the official ranking list and how many teams will move on to states. Team 1701 has moved on to the Michigan State Championship ranked 63rd, with 88 district points! The team is very excited to be moving on to states and we have made the necessary preparations for the trip!
Today the University of Detroit Jesuit hosted a Robofest competition not only for our small robotics teams or our outreach teams (from Gesu, Christ the King, and Most Holy Trinity) but for teams in the community. At this competition, there were 29 junior game teams, 2 senior exhibition teams, and 10 junior exhibition teams. This competition is the largest the school has ever hosted! This year the school moved the competition to the gym so we would have more space for teams. This worked out well and the competition stayed on schedule. At the competition, the entire FIRST robotics team volunteered to help set up the competition, help out during the competition, and clean up when the competition was over.
