Today we had our scrimmage with the team RoboWolves and Absolute Zero! It was amazing to see their robots glide across the field and place glyphs and the blink of an eye. The advice they gave for our robot was valuable and we had such a great time! Thank you to all the teams for showing up! Your support means a lot to us! Visit the Absolute Zero website here:
This week we are reminiscing about when we got into the second placing alliance at last week's Shenandoah Qualifier. It was amazing to work with the teams (RoboLords and RoboWolves)! We are so happy that we could make it to the finals and as a rookie team that was unthinkable! Now using the experience we had we are determined to continue to grow as a team for our upcoming tournament. Slice Of Pi is a force to be reckoned with...
Just finished our scrimmage with the Techie Panthers. They will also be coming to the December 16th tournament! Their robot was so cool to see in action and we learned a lot from them. Good Luck Techie Panthers
Deck the halls with boughs of holly, Fa la la la la la la la!
'Tis the season to be jolly, Fa la la la la la la la!
This holiday season Slice of Pi helped out their local homeless shelter. We provided them with fruit salad, baked potatoes, turkey sandwiches, and PB&J sandwiches. This robotics season we have given back to the community as much as we can.
We've finally finished our robot and we love it! Do you? To learn more about our robot you visit the About Us page.
Today we helped run the Hydro Dynamics Scrimmage for FLL Teams. We helped them with their projects and their robots. We also participated in the Relic - A - Thon and project shared with fellow FTC teams! We mentored about 15 FLL Teams and helped out 4 FTC Teams! Go Robotics! At the scrimmage we also raised over 1,000 dollars for Hurricane Harvey Relief funds! Always happy to give back :)
After overcoming many problem, we have finally finished the slider. The slider proved to be the most difficult of the items we were attaching to the robot because we had a lot of mishaps with having the same pieces. We had to use our problem solving skills, but at last it is here! TADA! It is placed strategically in the front of the robot and can handle picking up to three glyphs at a time! We used a DC Motor for this slider.
