We will have our debrief meeting/design review tomorrow after school, so we should have a full recap then.
We had a great time at the Dripping Springs District Event. The volunteers and venue were wonderful. We highly recommend teams sign up for this event in future years.
Our students did an awesome job of preparing for the competition and getting the robot ready. We knew for our first event we wanted to keep things simple and do what we knew we could do well. We shot largely from one or two areas and attempted to climb every match. We had several issues through the event that we had to work through to be ready for each match but we pushed hard in the pit to get things ready every time. It led us to an 17-1 record, the #1 seed, and the Championship with our partners Texas Torque (FRC#1477) and Team Orion (FRC#3240).
We also prepared heavily to speak with the judges both in the pits and for Chairman’s. We won the Engineering Inspiration Award for our work in providing resources for FRC teams and spreading STEM in our community. Our Chairman’s team did an excellent job preparing and presenting for the judges, our feed back was positive which is always good. There were several amazing teams at this event and only one could win, and we couldn’t be happier for our friends and alliance partners Texas Torque, they have one of the best programs in the world and it’s always fun working with them, what they do for their local community and for communities around the world is truly amazing.

Thank you to all the volunteers and teams for making it a great event,
