Announcements

  • Introducing Slack:

    In an effort to organize our team more and provide an easy way for Davis, Kenny and Ezra to make announcements we are requiring all team members to join the Bagel Bytes Slack account. Slack is a team/business application that allows members of a team or company to get in touch with one another, collaborate, make announcements and send files.

    It is avaliable on all mediums of communication (iOS, Google Play, Windows, Mac, Linux) and if fast and lightweight. IF YOU WERE NOT AVALIABLE FOR THE MEETING ON MONDAY, ALL TEAM MEMBERS MUST WRITE THEIR EMAIL ADDRESS THEY WISH TO ASSOCIATE WITH SLACK ON THE FRONT BOARD. Ezra will be inviting each member individually to the general channel and your coresponding sub-team channel.

    This is a trial run with this program. As such, please feel free to direct questions, comments and concerns to Ezra, Davis or "Kenny". If you wish to be confidential, email Ezra on his team email address (zelda@planet702.org).

    Once you are in the slack application private message Ezra and confirm you are in the Slack channel. Everyone must be in the Slack channel by Thursday.

    We recommend putting your notification settings for your sub-team channel to "mentions and highlighted words" and the general channel to "all activities" to avoid unnecessary notifications. We also recommend "memeing" and "casual chatting" in the random channel to avoid disrupting the work flow.

    DO NOT SPAM THE GENERAL CHANNEL, DISCIPLINE ACTIONS CAN AND WILL BE TAKEN IF NEEDED.

  • Notices for May 2nd - 6th:


    - Slack has so far been a success in terms of colaboration and getting in touch with people. We will continue to roll out new ideas/plans for Slack in the following weeks. If you have any questions/suggestions on the use of Slack, please PM Ezra.

    - Biggs and Wedge are still in development and are needed to be completed and ready to test by Friday! Anyone who can come in and provide assistance should as we are running on a very tight schedule, please refer to work schedule for times we are working.

We will be taking a batch of them so they can all be embroidered at the same time. If you wish to also have a team jacket or hoodie embroidered as well, please speak to Ezra.

Under Members -> Applications you can find the online portion of the application (estimated time of 10 minutes for completeion) and the parent permissions form. Complete the online portion and turn the parent permission protion in to Ezra in order to become a probationary member ahead of the start of the 2017 season! See Ezra or Davis for more details.

    - We are doing a Cooler Master Build Log and Cooler Master Photo Shoot (for the Masterwatt Charger) at some point this week. See Ezra if you are interested in participating. This is to be a small group of volunteers; extra people will be denied.
  • Leadership


    Congratulations to Ezra "Zelda" on the position of Captain and Kenny "Cheeto Bandito" on the position of Chef Engineer, we wish them good luck! Subteam leaders will be announced on a later date and are being decided on.
  • Ventura Regional Results

    Ventura was a massive success for the team as we showed our true colors, making it passed qualifiers and quarterfinals chosen by the 4th alliance seed, only to get stopped in the semifinals by the stacked 1st alliance seed that ended up taking the win at Ventura. As a team our robot was ranked 25th, but we were ranked 3rd overall. Something to take note of; our alliance came closest to beating the champions of Ventura over anyone else, a true accomplishment in our eyes.
  • Pixy Update

    Pixy is tracking and sending commands to the robot. We have it following the reflective tape. A bitbucket account containing the Open Source Pixy code in a easy-to-use package is being worked on right now and written instructions and documentation is in the works as well. All information on the Pixy can be found in the "Current Projects" page under the "Members" tab.
  • Welcome new sponsor Cooler Master

Welcome to the Culver City High School
Robotics Team Home



    Team 702

    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.

  • If I hold a banana, can I have a name too?
    4-29-2016

    It's been a while I know, seems like we dropped off the planet after competition. Well we didn't disappear but we were in recovery mode after the intense Ventura competition. Well we are back now and we were planning a leisurely post season project, play around with some ideas, mock them up, see if any work, and maybe use it next year. Pretty much a relaxing time in robotics...
  • We’re on our way, and ready to win!
    3-24-2016

    Following our poor run in Los Angeles Competition, our team set our eyes towards the Ventura regional, our second stop on the road to FRC Regional Champions.

  • CLANG!!!!
    3-22-2016

    That’s the answer to the question “What is the worst sound you can hear when the robot is being tested outside?” Why? Because that means they just rammed the robot into one of the steel supports holding up the outside roof.

  • Does HAL9000 Ring Any Bells?
    3-18-2016

    With Ventura competition just around the corner, the robot had to be refined and fixed. Now, generally, this would be done before our first regional competition, but that would be much too easy and, therefore, unrealistic for a High School robotics team attempting to build a robot in six weeks (if I’ve learned anything in the three years of FIRST, that would be it). But good things come from refinement after competition. For us, the fact that the only things that needed to be looked at following competition were the arm and the shooter was a gift from robot heaven.

  • Don't. Panic. It's just failure.
    3-8-2016

    Hello again from robot land! It’s been a while, how have you been? Hopefully good, because we have been as busy as ever preparing for the Long Beach Regional this week (March 10-12).

  • The Final Countdown (to midnight)
    2-23-2016

    Yesterday the sky was falling for us. Our six week build period was suddenly coming to an end, our deadline was hit, and it seemed like there wasn’t enough time in the world for us to use.
