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.

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.

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.

The team was invited to do a robot demonstration at Space Day at the Al Wooten Jr. Heritage Center. The RoboKongs and Code Orange were also part of the demo. The 3 teams had the oportunity to explain their robots to the little kids and show off the very different frizbee flinging mechanisms of the 3 robots. We will have pictures up soon so keep watch here for when they get uploaded.

The ringbearer, now named F-R0D0, performed perfectly at Ray and Katie's wedding. The flower arangements, mounted by Arielle "Brownie" and Amaris "Noodles", were beautiful and the robot was a huge hit for everyone.
Click here to see the F-R0D0 profile page with pictures and a link to the video.
The following comes from Mentor Ray:
"Thank you to everyone who helped with FR0D0. Katy and I loved it and it made our day truly special. See you in the fall."
