FHS Final Frontier worked hard on last year’s robot for the 2019 First Robotics Competition: Deep Space! During our meetings, the team worked to design, build, and program a robot which competed against others in March. Through this process, the students gained valuable team building, communication, problem solving, and design skills, while also getting the opportunity to work alongside community members who work in the engineering field.
The Final FRONTIER team #7887 earned their way to the Houston Robotics Championships in April. They returned, walking away with the 2019 Highest Rookie Seeded award for the Carver-Newton Division. Over the course of three days, the team was able to complete their qualifying matches holding on to the number 10 spot which landed them in the semi-finals as captains. Although both semi-final matches did not land us a win to the next round, the team was recognized by other alliances as being a strong contender.
This competition had over 400 teams competing from 5 different countries and 12 different states. Our team is the FIRST school in Ventura County to bring home ANY kind of award from the World Championships. This team made Ventura County history!
