2014 Official Drive Team – Flat Mountain Mechanics 4819
But they do actually know how to smile!
Since Christian was technically considered the “human player,” who handled the ball alongside the field, our true “drive team” was composed of these highly-skilled young women. Rebecca controlled the robot’s direction, movement, and cannon (ball-launcher). Her teammate to the left controlled the robot’s “arms” and ball intake mechanism. Rebecca’s teammate to the right was the team’s drive coach, who led strategy discussions with other drive teams and coordinated game-time maneuvers.
Rebecca can kick this high on the Gateway Arch🙂 Even though our family was unable to attend martial arts practice this spring because of constant robot meetings, our kids have not forgotten their training!
