March has been a busy month for MVHS Robotics. March 2-4 we hosted a robotics
tournament of 38 teams from around Washington. This past weekend we traveled to Glacier Peak High School in Snohomish to compete with 32 other teams from Washington and Oregon. Our robot did not perform as expected and we got a slow start, losing our first three matches. However, by the fourth match our robot was dialed in and we won the next four matches. We needed up with a record of 6-5- 1, not enough for an automatic trip to the playoffs. We did impress other teams enough to be selected on the 6 th seed alliance. Unfortunately we were eliminated in the first quarter final by the alliance that ended up in the finals and finishing second.
However, we did not come home empty handed! For the second year in a row we received
the coveted Imagery award for our pit décor and our uniforms. Our next projects include presentations at the Fire Mountain Cub Scout Day camp. We hope to be able to present the MVPD Bomb Disposal Robot as we demonstrate our robots. Our mentors are also discussing a Robotics Camp this summer that will focus on programming robots to navigate an obstacle course autonomously.
Yes, that is the Seahawks mascot, Blitz. Unfortunately, we were unable to get the whole team
together as Blitz was on a tight schedule.
