2016 FRC Stronghold day 2

First match went very well! We breached 3/5 defenses. During our second match of the day, the lights on the field broke. This caused our match to be voided and we are making it up later today. In our fourth match today, we breached two out of five defenses on the field due to a…

BAG DAY!!

February 23rd. The most dreaded/anticipated day for every robotics student. Although the end of build season saddened us, it did feel great to get a couple more hours of sleep. Bag day was a roller coaster of emotions for Team 5510. First, the janitors kicked us out of auto-shop at 10pm so we had to…

Marketing fun

Our marketing team has also been busy these past couple of weeks. This year we decided to participate in the FedEx Innovation Challenge.FedEx Innovation Challenge is a social media-based competition consisting of math and science problems, scavenger hunt activities, trivia and more. Although we did not win, we had a lot of fun filming the…

TABLE Competitions?

M.E.S.A. (Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievements) is another event some of our robotics members participate in. In this event students are challenged with competitions and tasks that require them to truly apply their skills. Hamilton hosted the MESA Prelims for the second consecutive year.  We participated in the Team Math Quest, Balsa wood Glider , Balsa…

Never Underestimate People Under Pressure

Last year we got to the Long Beach Convention Center just in time to drop off our robot. We organized to leave our school early so we could arrive in time at Long Beach and set up the pit. But like most things in life, we left late. Our robot got to Long Beach at…

Practice Makes Perfect

We only blew a couple motors so that’s good… But overall our robot is working really well. We can guarantee a breach for every match and have a working ball intake and low goal shooter (we can make the high goal but have no automatic aiming mechanism). Mechanical and Electrical teams are working hard until…

3 Weeks In

Already 3 weeks into build season and we’ve finished 2 prototypes and are working on our final product. We got our pneumatic wheels late last week and we are currently working on our ball intake and the arms. More pics and updates to come!
