Coming up in Robotics
Los Angeles Regional
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.
Spring Break, see you all on April 7
Welcome to the
Culver City High School
Robotics Team Home
Culver City High School Robotics is a team of Students and Professional Engineers 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 several fundraisers to support the entry and building costs of the competition. These include the Spaghetti Dinners held twice a year, Bake Sales, and the annual Haunted House held during the week before Halloween.

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!

The Bagel Bytes participated in the "Fall Classic" off season competition on Saturday October 19. The 2013 robot, Sir Nicholas, went into action again and promptly fell on his face. However, despite a couple setbacks with balance and deployment of the shooter, we ranked 7 out of 30 teams. During alliance selections we got bumped into the 6th seed position and were chosen by the 4th seeded Loyola High School "Killabyte Cubs" as their alliance partners. Although we were defeated in the first round of the quarter finals, everyone present had fun. So congratulations to the team and the final alliance.

CCHS Dedicated the new field before holding the first football game of the year on it. The ceremony featured members of all the CCHS teams, including the Robotics team. We showed off our newly reconstructed frizbee shooting robot running it sideways down the bleachers firing frizbees into the crowd. Pictures will be coming here soon.
