On November 10th, Lee Colson invited the Bullbots to a Rotary Club meeting to help with their presentation on FIRST. They talked about FLL, FLC, and FRC with demonstrations from the FLL team known as the Quake Snakes. We then talked about our FRC team, the Bullbots, and showed the challenge animation as well as a video of our robot.
On September 27th, the Bullbots hosted a back to school dance for local FIRST teams. We had lots of fun eating snow cones, taking pictures, and challenging members of Team Taters to Ultimate Frisbee and limbo. Even though there was a little rain, the Bullbots are full of pride at having hosted an event to boost comradery between teams.
The Bullbots want to thank Kendall Ford for the opportunities they gave us to raise some funds through the hot dog fundraising. One weekend we even brought our robot and were able to talk about our program with customers
On June 17th, members of the Bullbots were excited to participate in a collaborative presentation at the Micron Chip Camp with fellow FIRST team 2122-“Team Taters”. We enjoyed this opportunity to work with kids who were interested in the areas of science and engineering and tell them about our experiences as FIRST team members.
We got the 2013-14 year started off very well! As you may know, we moved from Renissance High School back to our true home at Mountain View High School. We huffed, and puffed, and plowed our way back to Mountain View. We give a BIG thank you to all of the parents, volunteers, and especially the students and mentors who gave up their time off during the summer to help us out! We started the year off by having a welcome night in early August. We recruited about 15 members for this year. We then got started into basic training based on interests in the club.
This year, The Bullbots collaborated with FIRST Team 4106, The Bots of Prey, to participate in Micron's CHIP Camp. Participating children were introduced to the FLL and FRC competitions. We used our robot to demonstrate how fun science and technology can be!
