Engineering Inspiration!

First off, congratulations on the team’s work this weekend.

The Engineering Inspiration Award is the second highest award a team can win at a competition behind the Chairman’s Award.  It is an award that recognizing our team’s efforts promoting engineering in our community and our efforts to create a sustainable organization that can operate for years to come.

Here’s what the judges said about our team.

Great efforts were put into play behind the scenes with our Chairman’s presenters of course, but all of the team’s individual efforts throughout the weekend also contributed.  Storm Robotics was clearly present at the event and fully engaged. So good job Storm!

We are now 1 of 7 teams who are eligible to win this award at MAR Champs.

MAR Champs is the only thing between us and a return to Worlds

The team has earned a spot to compete for the Engineering Inspiration Award at MAR Champs through a process similar to Chairman’s, and two of the seven teams will earn a spot at the FIRST World Championship!  The unique thing about this award is that it does not automatically advance our robot into the tournament, we will still need to be among the top 50 teams in the region to compete in that portion of the tournament.

Our robot is (as of this post) in 19th place with 60 points, so we are eligible but there are still teams who need to compete at their second event.

Seneca Competition Day

Today (of course if weather permits) Storm is going out to set up at the Seneca FRC competition

We’re really looking forward to the competition today, and after our adjustments we’re looking for a good one today.


Thanks to all the students, mentors and parents that come out to support as well as Iron Devils for hosting tonight.

Have a great competition to all the teams and good luck!

Remember to bring your GP with you everyone.

Hatboro Horsham!


Here’s a little update from our recent competition at Hatboro Horsham.

The team finished 6th out of 37 teams, captained the 4th playoff alliance, and won the Entrepreneurship Award. We need to send a special shout-out to members of our program management department on their work writing and submitting that award. Shout-outs also go out to those of you in the pits who represented the team when the judges came around to follow up on the award.

As far as first competitions go, this one was challenging but also one of our better showings. This is what happens in robotics, you learn and adjust constantly until you get it right.
