“NOT ENOUGH TORQUE.”
We are Team 569A! Excited for the new season Tower Takeover, we are determined to build a fully functioning robot that will win awards and tournaments as we compete throughout the year. In our team, we are all very connected and are overjoyed to build new friendships with the new team members this year. We are all sophomore or freshman members who are involved in many aspects of our robot. Our team has worked diligently all year to ensure that our robot is functioning to its best ability, as well as managing our many different departments. Our team has set many goals for this year, and we plan to push ourselves to achieve the very best.
Our building team works diligently to assure that there are no mishaps or issues with the design. Our builders have collaborated to find the perfect mixture of speed, stability, and strength. Our design will help us to go great distances during this competition season.
Our team prides itself on autonomous and coding. We have excelled in the coding area many times from last year, competing with some of the best teams from around the world. We have spent all year refining our autonomous routines and enhancing the way we use our encoders.
Our team did fantastic in the 2018-2019 Vex Robotics Competition challenge, Turning Point. 569A went to states, and worlds. We were in the Technology division for Worlds. We won 1 award.
Lex is one of our team leaders. He is learning coding and building. We all enjoy being around Lex as his intelligence and good mood is always rampant.
Nicholas is our other team leader. He is a veteran coder and can’t stand nicknames. It’s Nicholas or nothing.
Brock is a builder for our team. He has done robotics for several years and while his building is sometimes unique, it gets the job done.
Jason is also a builder for our team. He has done robotics in middle school and some people enjoy rubbing his buzz cut head for good luck.
Kacy does anything that needs to be done in club. She is always keeping us organized and our table clean.
