24 Hours until Worlds!

It has all been leading up to this moment, everyone working together to design, build, and program the robot. Volunteering and organizing Outreach and Connect events, competing in scrimmages, and BC Championships, all to get to… The World Championships!

Packing up the Field and Robot

As we prepare to leave for our flight, we prepare to transport our robot, pack up our field, and prepare. In the past three years, FIX IT has qualified for the World Championships but never had a chance to compete due to Covid-19. For all of our team members, it will be our first time at the World Championships!

Thank you to the VI-Tech Park for providing us with a space to set up a field. We’ll miss our temporary digs in Mystic Beach!

We are all excited, and can’t wait to meet teams from all over the world. Safe travels to everyone!

Washington State Championships

It was great seeing all the teams at the Washington State Championships. Technova’s autonomous program was amazing, even if it had a few difficulties. We liked Perpetual Velocity’s fun team introductions, Bearded Pineapples had a great slideshow with CAD and of course, Safety Steve.

We like this year’s game since Alliances really have to work together to score the most points. Lots of teams were working with their Alliance Partners on the practice fields which was fun to watch.

Our robot had good matches (successful autonomous, stacking and end game points) and challenges (dragging a tape measure around the field during tele-op).

14179 Sushi Squad (2nd Alliance Captain) choose 12611 TechNova and FIX IT for their alliance partners. Unfortunately, we lost out in the semi-finals.

FIX IT was very excited to win the Inspire Award and qualify for the Houston Championships!

Wow, we won Inspire!
