Coming up in Robotics
July 30, 2014
We will need some people to come in to help get Fr0d0 ready. Our little wedding robot has a job at the end of August and at the moment it does not even run. Yet to be finished are the pneumatic system, programing, and getting the robot to look presentable. So we will need a mechanic, programmer, electronics, and a couple people to make a shell around the robot. Let Davis know if you can come and help, we will be meeting around 1pm.
meeting today for F-R0d0 repair team

The 2014 Robot, "The Troll" now has its profile page up in past robots. Click here to read it. I cannot find a picture of it in its final form though so the picture is missing. If anyone has a good picture of 2014's final LA form, please send it to me so I can finish the update.
2014 Robot Profile Page is now up

Thank you to everyone who gave up part of their summer to come help get the room back in order and reorganize our storage system. You will all see the results of all their hard work when you return this fall.
SUMMER CLEANUP HAS ENDED
Welcome to the
Culver City High School
Robotics Team Home
Culver City High School Robotics is a team of Students and Professionals who work together to build a robot for the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition. The season is six weeks starting in January when we build and test a robot to compete in FIRST Regional Competitions against teams from across California. Winning a regional competition qualifies us to compete in the FIRST Championship Event held in St Louis.
Outside of the season, the team participates in many activities and fundraisers to support the entry and building costs of the competition.
March 20-22, 2014
The LA Regional Competition did not go very well. We ended Friday ranked 10th, but then lost every match on Saturday due to some extremely bad luck. I still want to congratulate everyone on the team for their hard work, we had a good season, now we need to get ready for the next one.
Los Angeles Regional FIRST Robotics Competition
March 7-9, 2014
Despite more breakdowns and repairs than any robot in the last 8 years, The robot finished 13th out of 45 teams. Unfortunately it did not make the quarter finals. However a special recognition needs to go to the drive team. Even with half the robot constantly breaking down, they still managed to play and compete and make a contribution to each alliance through both scoring and defense. Congradulations to Chris "Mostaza", Aly "Fluffy Headed Fiend" and Amaris "Noodles"
Central Valley Regional FIRST Robotics Competition
January 4 - February 18, 2014
With a week and a half of pure design and near complete CAD, we built the new robot for competition with a catapult and omni drive. Thank you to all team members who spent the long nights and especially the weekends working on the robot. There is a lot to do in the off season so make sure you keep aware of what the team is doing.

Engineering Week Games at Raytheon
CCHS sent a team of 3 robotics team members to the 14th annual Engineering Games at Raytheon. The CCHS team, along with the Milken Community High School team, won 1st place by a wide margin by building a device that locks on to a light source and maintains its orientation despite rotating the platform it sat on. Congratulations to team members Chris "Mostaza", Lani "80s Rewind", and Mario "Chickie Moo". Pictures coming soon!
