VBRC 2011 update

The electronics and robotics students did an OUTSTANDING job this year. The competition was fierce, and the students helped each other in the pits all day, making it very collaborative (gracious professionalism). These are a few of the pix we had from the day.

The students had to stay at the start zone and guide their robot to the 'shack' to open the door, retrieve the dangerous biohazard objects, return them to the drop zone, and then go rescue the soldier hostage. Different strategies were used, and different successes were met with just as many faults, to be modified and fixed by the next round of course!

Some robots had an onboard camera, but most just used the camera that was mounted above the shack.

At the end of the day, our students earned 1st, 2nd ,3rd, 4th and 5th in the Level 2 VBRC 2011 Competition! We also had an electronics student team get 1st in the Level 1 VBRC 2011 Competition (basketball style w/ smaller bots)! Way to go Eagles!!!!
