The Flat Mountain Mechanics demonstrated their robot at our local home education spring showcase.
Although we didn’t have a full competition court for the full theatrical effect of FRC, the team used their homemade plywood low goal to demonstrate dumping frisbees in autonomous mode.
Then, the team driver resumed control of the robot…
and successfully negotiated the robot up to the third level of the tower. [The team’s lead mentor borrowed an official competition tower from the Michigan FRC organization for demo purposes.]
Grandma and Christian watched from the side of the sanctuary.
Several team members had prepared a slide show of the past season’s activities.
Team awards were displayed along with FRC information. We’re hoping for additional team members to participate next season.
After the showcase performances finished, spectators were invited to drive the robot. Rebecca remained in the cordoned-off area to intervene in case of robot crisis.
Christian installed a new battery when the robot tired.
Even Grandpa took the opportunity to operate the robot:)
