CCHS Robotics club meets online on Wednesday at 1:30 PM via Zoom. If you are interested in joining the team, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our club goals are to provide opportunities to learn a wide range of skills, from the obvious robot-related tool use to strategy, business planning, fundraising, grant writing, programming, website development, video creation and more. Robot build requires computer aided design (CAD), prototyping, metal and wood cutting and assembly and welding. Students need not know any of these skills in order to join the club or team, however they are expected to learn skills that interest them and contribute to team activities. For those students actively engaged and interested, in late Fall we offer the opportunity to join our FIRST robotics Team 702, the Bagel Bytes (www.team702robotics.com ). FIRST (www.FIRSTinspires.org ) is a worldwide robotics organization offering a challenging build and competition season starting in January and lasting through April.
Due to the pandemic and school closure, our team only meets remotely at this time, and all competition for the 2020-2021 season will be remote in nature. As of October, we have the following project underway.:
October-November: Robot Rose Parade. We will be decorating and demonstrating our 2018 robot to create a 1-minute video to be submitted to the Tournament of Roses as a potential segment for their TV coverage on January 1st. Coach Singer and Stout helped create this event, and it has been approved by the Tournament organization and will include submissions by local LA area teams.
FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) 2021 Season: FIRST has announced 3 competitions, and our team has decided to participate in all 3.
- Design an FRC competition game
- Develop, prototype and create a business plan for a new product (similar to shark tank).
- Compete with other teams using our 2020 season robot, following the competition set forth for last season’s build and competition rules.
