Team Orange Chaos had an amazing district competition at Worcester Polytechnic Institute this past weekend. The team competed against 40 other teams from around the New England area, finishing 2 days of qualifying matches in 1st place! During the finals round, Orange Chaos was team captain of the 1st place alliance and was eliminated in the semi-finals. Huge thank you to our alliance teammates, Team 2648 Infinite Loop and Team 1100 The T-Hawks!!
The team was awarded Excellence in Engineering by the judging panel, this award celebrates elegant and advantageous machine features. Our robot scored the most high goals of the entire competition, had available a variety of autonomous programs for the robot to cross opponents defenses in the first 20 sec of play and was the first of only 2 robots to to scale the castle wall. The judges recognized that our robot could tackle all aspects of the 2016 FRC Stronghold Challenge and looked amazing. All the pages of programming, SOLIDWORKS (CAD) designing and 3-D printing efforts paid off!
Thanks to all mentors and parents who traveled to Worcester to support the team!
This weekend find us at WPI District event! Winsor and the team are ready for our first competition this season. The mechanical and programming teams have been hard at work fine tuning and making sure we can breach, climb and throw! Can't wait to see all the bots in action!
