This Tuesday, some of our team went to go visit ViaSat at their facility. A lucky few even got to drive one of their satellites. We had a great time learning about satellite communications and it was a cool experience for all attendees.

GA FIRST Robotics Symposium

What good is knowledge if it isn’t shared? The Robo Lions recently had the honor of presenting a session on Vision Tracking using a Raspberry Pi and Effective Social media at Georgia Tech for the GA FIRST Robotics Symposium. Teams from across the state attended the event which was hosted by the Georgia Tech RoboJackets in the hopes of helping Georgia teams bond and strengthen each other as we get ready for a new game in January. We can’t wait for another season of working with all of our friends!

Trunk or Treat

This week we were at our school’s trunk or treat! Our trunk was a star wars theme which we had nicely decorated. We had a robotastic time from Kobe, our vex bot, showing off his dancer moves with the beatbox club, lightsaber fights, and seeing bunch of ghouls, goblins, and super heroes! This was a great opportunity for our team to go out and have some fun with the halloween spirit.

G.R.I.T.S

Last Saturday, October 22nd, the Robo Lions headed up to Riverside Military Academy in Gainesville for our off-season event, GRITS. Our rookie drivers were able to get some good drive team experience, and their efforts paid off; we ended qualifiers as the 3rd seed alliance captain. Our alliance included teams 4188 and 2974. We played our best in semifinals but were beat out by the 2nd seed alliance, composed of teams 1746, 2415, and 4468. On behalf of team 1261, we would like to offer our sincere congratulations to those teams; they played an excellent set of matches.
We were honored to win the GRITS outreach award due to our large number of rookies, and we would like to extend a thank you to Georgia FIRST as well as the alumni and volunteers who made this event possible!
