This is the page for the 2018 Year.

This year marks a drastic change on the team in that we began to focus solely on FRC both semesters (rather than doing VEX in the fall).

Leadership

This year also saw significant changes in Leadership roles. Due to lower membership, many appointed positions were removed.

Mentors


Pre-Season (Fall 2017)

The team spent the majority of the fall semester preparing for GRITS, as last year saw some issues regarding robot performance.

GRITS Preparation

The team met every Tuesday at the start of the semester from 5-8 PM to prototype potential new designs or modifications to last year's design. As the event approached, the team began meeting on Monday and Thursday at the same time in addition to the Tuesday meetings.

The team decided to focus more on gears rather than last year's not as successful strategy of going for fuel. As such, the fuel intake and shooter were removed in favor of a wooden intake that was able to slide left to right as well as move outward. The winch from last year was kept, although moved in position.

GRITS

The team attended GRITS at Riverside Military Academy on October 28-29, 2017. They played alongside other teams in Georgia and had a phenomenal time. In terms of rankings, the team ended up in 22nd place and sadly was not chosen for alliance selection. That being said, the team did learn a lot during the event, as a mostly inexperienced drive team gained valuable experience and rookies on the team learned about Pit Scouting.

Fall Outreach Events

Suwanee Day Parade

The team once again participated in the Suwanee Day Parade with a theme focused on STEM in general. With a custom designed banner, the team took to the parade by holding up STEM related signs and passing out candy to the children on the sides. In addition, they used a giant bubble wand to blow massive balloons as the parade float moved along. To top it off, they shot T-shirts out of Jeff and used Genesis to propel beach balls into the crowd. The team's float was awarded an Honorable Mention by the judges.

Duluth Fall Festival

The team also attended the Duluth Fall Festival for the 3rd year in a row. Rocking a similar set up as the Suwanee Day Parade, the team was able to shoot even more T-Shirts into the crowd at the Fall Festival. For many rookies, it was their first outing with a team.

Trunk Or Treat

The team did participate in Peachtree Ridge's third annual Trunk or Treat, where students from different schools go from trunk to trunk to trick or treat in a safe environment. This year, the team created a Pac-Man arcade game styled trunk. Students were able to participate in an event where they tossed a green ball into the Pac-Man head created by Claris Lee.
