/ Competition Season Kickoff

With the conclusion of our pre-season, the team is ready to begin our competition season after a month-and-a-half break between the two seasons. The team will review the information, provided by FRC, about the competition. Once provided with the necessary information, our team gets straight to work and begins to plan out the exciting weeks before competition!

/ Grand Prix 2021

In order to prepare well for the upcoming competition season, we are splitting our one large team into two teams led by our team captain, Caleb, and our team co-captain, Isabella. These sub-teams will design a robot mounted with a ball shooter, used to complete various tasks. A majority of the tasks have to do with shooter accuracy. By splitting into two teams, more students have the chance to work hands-on with the robot and new students will have an easier time integrating themselves into the team.

/ The Water Game

Although FIRST has organized activities and opportunities for students to be working and creating, we had a successful fall season and have decided to create our own game to play in for our competition season. This game was a water game that involves shooting water, dropping off mermaids, picking up rings from the pool floor, and rescuing a family from their burning boat. To ensure that every student had a role to play, we broke our own team into three smaller teams that will be competing against each other and meeting at separate times. An additional team, apart from our larger team, also joined our competition.

/ Intramural Competition

With help from a lot of volunteers, careful planning, and a hard work, our Intramural Competition was a success. For the competition, we split our team into four sub-teams that had to create a robot to participate in challenges of speed, maneuverability, shooting, and traction. We are very proud of how well each team did in the competition, and congratulations to team Infin8 for being the overall winners. Click on the image to the right to see our video recap of the event!

/ Team Showcase

We sent a team to our elementary school to give a presentation to the students and a girl scout troop about all the amazing things we get to do. The group that went included at least one team member from each area of our team so the kids could see the diversity of FRC. There was a time for Q & A, and all of the students were invited to attend our upcoming competitions. We always love these opportunities to inspire students in STEM.

/ Cerritos Library Demonstration

feb 7, 2020

Our Robot Demonstration Night at the Cerritos Library was a blast! We led a demonstration along with an FTC team from Whitney High School. The kids we had the opportunity to talk with loved watching our competition robots run. We brought our little Vex robots for kids to drive giving them the ability to learn in a hands-on manner.

/ Build Season Kickoff

The first weekend of January is our competition season kick-off every year. FIRST puts out videos outlining what the new season's game is, and everyone works to get our team ready for the competition. Our robot must be fully functioning for our first competition with enough time for our drivers to practice driving it. Along with the robot, we write submissions for awards that can be won at each competition. 

boot camp

Our Boot Camp is when all of our new students learn about each guild and how to safely operate the tools and machines in our machine shop. During these days, students are put into groups, and they rotate around in each guild. The guild leaders and mentors explain their part of the team and why a student may or may not want to be on that part of the team. 

april 18-20

/ FRC Nationals

We went to Houston as a Wild Card pick and the captains of a 2nd place alliance. Our team was placed into the Newton Division, and we were asked to join the Fourth seed alliance. Unfortunately we lost during Quarterfinals, but the entire experience was a fun way for our team to learn and grow. Our desire to return has increased, and we hope to go to Nationals once again.
