Welcome!!

Hey everyone,

Whether this is your first visit to our site or your 30,000th, welcome!

As we head back to school on the 28th of August, we start our robotics pre-build season. There will be an announcement sometime around late September into early October, detailing when we will have our kickoff meeting. Anyone can join the team, no matter if you’ve never used a power tool or if you’re an old pro, we teach all team members how to safely used the team tools.

Stay tuned for more information about our kickoff meeting


Competition update

The past few days have been interesting to say the least. Thursday was full of fixing many different parts of the robot and getting inspected.

Friday was a day filled with qualification matches. The first few of matches were less than ideal, we had chains break and connection issues, along with our climber getting stuck on a gear peg, causing us to not climb fully. Finally in our last match of the day we scored four gears and attempted climbing again, getting very close but not quite triggering the touch pad. We, along with our alliance finished off the game strong and won!!

Big thanks to parent drivers and spectators for all of your support. We couldn’t do it without you!!

We have matches tomorrow at 10:04 am and 10:52 am .

Let’s go MILLERBOTS!!!!

Getting ready for competition!!!

The time is almost here!!

Students are working diligently to get the robot all set and ready to go to competition. Chain guards are being designed and printed(via 3-D printer),software is doing last minute checks on all the systems,and the drive team is practicing. Everything is falling in place.

Competition is April 6-8 and we hope to see you all there, its is really an awesome event to see(and it’s free).

Reminder: Robotics Mon-Thurs next week, with a parent(and student) meeting Thursday night 6:30, mandatory for all who are planning to attend competition.

 


Duluth

We had an awesome time at the Duluth regional. We went up to watch matches, scout and learn more about strategies to help us win.  It was really cool to watch teams win, with scores getting as high as 425!

A huge thank you to parents who drove up(and back). You are all awesome !!

 


Bag and Tag

Well we did it. 6 weeks all leading up to the minutes we pack up the robot, set for competition. A huge thank you to parents, mentors, and students for being awesome, bringing food, driving, being voices of reason etc. Thank you all we could have never done it without you !!
