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.

The Season Flies By!

February  14th, 2015 marks the last Saturday build meet for Storm. That means that our build season will be concluded and we will be closing in on our first competition at Hatboro-Horsham. With the robot nearing completion, the team continues to rework their strategies and the components of the robot.

Mechanical is currently remodeling the intake system, however they are attempting to strip off any excess weight from the robot. Even though the robot is a few pounds below the weight cap, it would be preferable if the robot could be as light as possible.

Electrical and Software are also in the process of refining their work by making sure that everything is operable during the competition.

Meanwhile, Program Management is diligently working on the Chairmen’s Award which is the most prestigious award given by FIRST. It commemorates the best team that serves as a role model towards the others competing in the competition.


Electrical utilizes one of the most important skills in life: Wire Management!
