AboutThis season is our third year in FTC. We're really excited about what this season will bring us! So far it has gone really well and we have learned a ton. We learned about graphic design, more advanced CAD work, video editing, and more advanced programming. This has been our best season so far in FTC. At the state tournament we were super excited to win the First Place Inspire Award and receive the Inspire Banner for the first time! We were the winning alliance captain, Stratasys award winners, and also the promote award winners. With these awards we have earned a slot to the North Super Regional in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. We are super excited to see what the rest of the season will bring for us in these coming months!
The 2015-2016 RES-Q season was our second year in FTC. It was an amazing season. We learned so much about rapid prototyping, Android Studio, and machining parts. We created our second FTC robot named Steve V2 and programmed it to accomplish the missions on the field. Overall, we have had a lot of success over the past season. At the regional level, we took home a First Place Think Award for the quality of our Engineering Notebook. We also received the First Place Promote Award for our 60 second Public Service Announcement. We also won the Stratasys Award for our use of 3D printing. At one of our regionals we were on the Winning Alliance for robot performance. We were nominated for many other awards including ones for our programming and Creo work as well as overall robot design and aethetics. The most prestigious award we took home at the regional level, however, was one Second Place Inspire Award for our well-roundedness as a team and one First Place Inspire Award. The first of these Inspire awards advanced us to the state competition.
At the State level, we earned the First Place PTC Design Award and advanced to the North Super Regional with a Third Place Inspire Award. We were also selected for an alliance for the second time at the State competition and made it to the division finals!
The North Super Regional was held in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Teams from across the Midwest arrived to compete. This tournament was a blast for us as we made many new friends. We ended up taking home the First Place Control Award for our programming and autonomous too and advanced to the World Festival. The World Festival was held in St. Louis, Missouri. There were 128 teams from around the United States and rest of the world too! It was really cool seeing so many amazing teams from around the world all in one competition. We had so much fun here and are glad to have ended our season on a high note.
