This past Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, the San Marino High School’s Robotics team competed at the annual Los Angeles Regional. In attendance were sixty-six teams from all over California as well as three teams from Chile and one team from Colombia.
The Titanium Robotics robot, ‘Turbo,’ played well throughout the elimination matches and bonded with many of the teams there. At the end of the elimination matches, they were selected to be placed with the second highest alliance out of a total of eight alliances.
San Marino’s alliance consisted of Da Vinci Science High School, Duncan Polytechnical High School in Fresno and Titanium Robotics.
The three teams proved to be a powerful and mighty alliance, working in unison to score numerous points all while showing gracious professionalism towards the other alliances.
The team also won two major awards and one minor award while at the competition: the Entrepreneruship award, the Industrial Safety award and the Safety Star award.
The Entrepreneurship award celebrates the entrepreneurial spirit by recognizing a team that has developed the framework for a comprehensive business plan to scope, manage, and achieve team objectives.
The Industrial Safety award commemorates a team that has progressed beyond safety fundamentals by using innovative ways to eliminate or protect against hazards. Justine Hou, the safety captain, was named “Safety Star” of the day and won the Safety Star award. Overall, the team had an amazing experience while at the competition and had experiences that they are sure to never forget.
“This team has done very well together,” said Coach Scott Barton of his fifty-member team who share a common interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. “They have brilliant minds but also know how to have fun while they are learning.”
