Fundraiser at Live Right Acai
April 22 - 25 2015
The team has qualified to go to the FIRST Robotics Championships April 22-25 in St. Louis! The team is extremely excited, but it brings up the problem of paying for travel. We are trying to raise enough money to send 14 students to St Louis. If you wish to help out with a donation, you may use the link in the upper right corner saying "Make a donation". Keep watching here for fundraiser info and other ways you can support the team.
San Diego Regional Competition
The Bagel Bytes ranked 45th out of 60 teams at the FIRST San Diego Regional Competition. While the ranking may look low, it does not tell the story of this event. We started out having problems with our new mechanism meaning we scored very low, maybe 6 to 10 points. In the second half, we were regularly scoring 48 points, carrying our alliances as the primary scoring robot. Unfortunately this years ranking is based on the average score of a robot. So although we were doing exceptionally well in our last 5 matches, it was not enough to make up for the low scores earlier when averaged together. And although we did not make it into the quarter finals, its hard to be disappointed when we have already qualified for championships with a fully functional robot.
April 2nd through 4th
Los Angeles Regional Competiton
We finished ranked 65 out of 66. There was a major flaw in our design that could not be fixed at the competition that made the can unable to balance and tip out every time. The result was box only stacks with really low scores. The problem was easily fixed once we returned home and the flaw was gone by the time we left for San Diego.
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!
