Hey FIRST girls! Happy New Year! The 2013 build season has started with a bang and this year’s game, Ultimate Ascent.

Over the summer and in the off-season, the Bees kept busy, going to IRI and reaching the Finals. It was a mind-blowing time of fun, competition, and improvement. At the beginning of the school year, we refreshed and improved skills through OCCRA (Oakland Community Competitive Robotics Association, a local robotics league) and through our four VEX teams, one for each grade. We also began work for the website and sponsor presentations.

This year, the Killer Bees have been buzzing away since Kickoff, getting deep into the design process and starting compilations for the Chairman’s Award and videos.

I know it’s been awhile since our last post but this year, the blog will be up and going as strong as ever with interviews, personal stories, opportunities, and even explanations of science and math concepts used in robotics. Keep checking back here for more posts, good luck this season!
