York Students in action
The 2018 FIRST Robotics Competition game was revealed on January 6, 2018. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HZbdwYiCY74. This is the 5th year that York School's robotics team will be participating and we are preparing for the 2018 FRC season with 12 experienced, returning students.
As background: In 2014, a group of York students founded Deus Ex Machina, the school’s first FRC team. Our team won the Rookie All-Star Award and advanced to the international championship in St. Louis, Missouri. Since all but two members graduated, 2015 was akin to a second rookie year for York. Fortunately, recruitment from all grade levels in 2016 allowed us to build up experience to ensure the continued existence of the team. When the 2017 FRC season started, returning students made up nearly half our team. At the end of our 2017 season we received the GM Industrial Design Award at the Silicon Valley Regional, one of only two design awards given at arguably the most competitive regional event in the country.
Good luck 2018 team and build your best robot ever!
