This year, the Robotics Club at Los Alamos High is determined to get past the semifinals and win big at this year’s “FIRST” Robotics Competition.
According to David Phillips, a contractor who is also the lead mentor for the group, they’ve come close in the past two years, but there was always something to trip them up in the end.
“In every tournament we’ve been in, we’ve made it to the semifinals of the elimination round,” Phillips said. “...We’d really like to get that final match.”
According to Phillips, they’ve learned much from being in the competitions, and they are applying the lessons they’ve learned to this year’s competition. He said now they are constantly testing the individual components of the robot, rather than waiting to test the whole machine at once. The idea is to get each individual part working correctly so when it does all finally come together, there’ll be less bugs in the system.
