Summary

Summary

Poway High School Robotics, Team Spyder 1622

This presentation provides an overview of the Poway High School Robotics “Team Spyder 1622” and the worldwide FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) in which it competes. Special emphasis is on the activities of the 2014 season.

One purpose of this presentation is to express our gratitude to our sponsors, including GA through its GASSS program.


Poway high school engineering pathway

Poway High School Engineering Pathway

The Engineering Pathway is a set of STEM courses (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Technology):

  • Introduction to Engineering Design

  • Engineering Geometry

  • Principles of Engineering

  • Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM)

  • Engineering Design Development

  • Architectural Design

  • Science Olympiad

  • Robotics

Poway High School Engineering Pathway

The Engineering Pathway is part of Project Lead The Way (PLTW), which involves 68 university partners. Many universities have special scholarships for FIRST participants.

The Robotics course is open to all Poway High School students, from Grade 9-12.


Background on first jrfll fll ftc frc

Background on FIRST: JrFLL, FLL, FTC, FRC

FIRST was founded by Dean Kamen (of Segway fame) in 1989. FIRST stands for: For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology.

FIRST is now divided into four programs, based on the participant’s age.

FLL (FIRST Lego League) uses the LegoMindstorms robotics components, whereas FTC (FIRST Technology Challenge) uses the TETRIX system.

Background on frc

Background on FRC

The FRC is usually a sports-like game with two opposing teams on a field. Each side has three robots. During the qualifiers, robots are assigned to each side. During later rounds, winning teams get to choose their partners.

Each game begins with an autonomous period of about 30 seconds, followed by about two minutes of remotely operated action.

In R/C mode, the pilots use joysticks to drive the robots via a wireless link. The robots are about five feet high with a footprint of about 3x3 feet. They are limited in weight to 150 pounds.

2014 frc challenge aerial assist

2014 FRC Challenge “Aerial Assist”

The 2014 “Aerial Assist” game is almost a mix of basketball and volleyball. Spanning the midline of the court is a truss (see photo on next slide). On either end of the court there are windows behind which the operators stand. Above the windows are oval holes which are goals for scoring. On the ground at each corner is a frame: when the ball is pushed through it, points are scored. Passing the ball between robots is also worth points.

Students and mentors troubleshooting during the assembly: we settled on a launching frame with a linear spring (we added surgical tubing later, to increase the launch force)
