CI RoboRaiders competed in their first FIRST Robotics competition
Over the past Spring Break, the CI RoboRaiders competed in their first FIRST Robotics competition, the Ventura Regional held at Ventura College. The four day event was the culmination of thirteen weeks of long evenings and weekends in the workshop designing, building, coding, and troubleshooting our robot, RoboRaider Sam. Our kids, the OG RoboCrew, had a lot of fun and learned their share in robotics, use of tools, teamwork, electronics, coding, and patience over the course of this year’s build season. From the moment we stormed onto the field at the last minute to participate in the opening match of the competition to the last set of matches where we played against our sister team, Hueneme, and then with them in the next match, these seven Raiders showed the highest of Community, Integrity, Honor, Social Responsibility, and Love for the Game. Our team will now focus on recruitment for the next season and honing their skills building their robot to their highest expectations. Our students would like to extend thanks to the team from Hueneme High School for hosting us throughout the season so we could share their mentor, tools, and workspace. We would be lost without their hospitality and friendship. Thanks also go out to Dr. Senesac and Mr. Prum for coming to watch us play and just supporting the team.
