On Monday, members of our team presented our 2014 robot and information about our team and FIRST to students and their families. Around 250 kids attended with around 450 people impacted overall. This was a great opportunity to inspire students in pursuing STEM fields.
Team Neutrino will have an informational meeting for the 2014-15 season on Wednesday, September 10 from 6-7pm. We will be in room 1312 Hoover Hall (on the ISU campus), and we will have pizza.
This will be an informational meeting so that you can learn more about our team, and what you will be doing should you decide to continue on as a member.
We finished quals being seeded first. We picked 2574 (second seed) to be our second alliance pick and 4239 to be our third alliance pick. We made it through elims pretty well with the exception of the last 2 finals matches when we lost to the 3rd seeded alliance captain due to pneumatics problems not allowing us to shoot or climb. Even though we experienced this tragic event that blew our team away, we continued showing our gracious professionalism. As one of the regional event directors told me, our gracious professionalism really showed through and she could tell that we were a 4-H team because of the heart we showed by giving up our timeout before the first finals match to the other alliance to allow them to re-image a crio. After the last finals match, I took a photo of what the front of our robot looked like (see the photo to the left). We seriously got hit hard by another team as the hex aluminum tube was bent in fairly far and our bumpers were also bent in. We brought home the Innovation in Controls award for our work with our 7 disk auton. We are sad to say that our season has ended with this unfortunate set of events and that we won’t be attending Champs like we all were looking so forward to doing, especially the graduating seniors. Keep checking back here for updates from the team throughout the off-season of our outreach activities.
