This is the page for the 2019 Year.

This year was a very strong year for the Robo-Lions, with many of them team's members being Seniors from the Class of 2019, waiting to pass on the baton to the many members of the Class of 2021.

Leadership

This Year, we implemented a new Leadership Structure involving a Project Manager and a Strategy Lead

Mentors


Pre-Season (Fall 2018)

The team spent the majority of the fall semester training the New Rookies for the upcoming 2019 season. We did attempt to create an elevator robot for the 2018 game, but it was never finished. The training efforts were largely successful, however, given the many new rookies coming in from the class of 2022.

GRITS

The team attended GRITS at Blessed Trinity HS on October 13, 2018. 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, and we were able to find out the members on our team who were solid at driving.

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 4th 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 sported a Lilo and Stitch themed Trunk, complete with many fun games and activities for the kids.

Competition Season

This one was an interesting one. With essentially the same team as 2018, the team got to work prototyping and designing for the 2019 season on January 6th. After much work during those 6 weeks, we were able to come up with Pumbaa, a low-level hatch and cargo machine designed to stay low and play to other bot's weaknesses. This strategy turned out well for the team, as we cleaned up with the Autonomous Award and Quarterfinals at Albany. After some revisions prior to the Forsyth event, including a Tongue and a level 2 climb, we hit the ground running there, partnering with Team 1683 the TechnoTitans, ranking 5th place, and taking home the Safety Award. Our outstanding Forsyth performance put us on the map at States, where we made it all the way to the Semi-Finals. While we thought this was the end for us, our team got a Wild Card Invitation to the 2019 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS in Houston for the 2nd time in a row! We had a blast in Houston, and while we didn't get picked, we certainly learned gained a lot of experience for the 2020 season!
