RoboBroncs Season 21-22

The 2021-2022 season has been one of the most successful yet in Robobroncs History! Using new skills that we learned from our nearly 2 season-long break from competing due to COVID-19, we were able to design a robot with more thought and intentional design than ever before. In addition, we attended more regional events than we have had before in a single season, including the Hueneme Port Regional, the Colorado Regional, and the Utah Regional. We won an Engineering Inspiration Award, a Chairman's Award, and a Quality Award, securing us a double qualification for the World Championship in Houston, TX. At the World Championship, we ranked 18th out of 76 teams in the Roebling Division. This season we have also continued to expand our relationship with the Wind River Reservation and other robotics teams in Wyoming, as well as continued to promote FIRST in our own community. This fall, we will be attending the Kendrick Castillo Memorial Tournament in Denver, CO.

RoboBroncs Season 20-21

Due to COVID-19, this FRC season, we haven’t been able to build a robot as much as we usually do. With that being said, we decided to become more engaged with our FTC teams. We mentor FTC students in Jackson Hole High School to help them along the way and to build strong connections. Another thing we’ve been working on is presenting the Chairman’s Award, as well as, the Innovation Challenge presented by Qualcomm. For Our Innovation Challenge, we decided to continue to connect with the Wind River Reservation. We designed a program that use virtual reality, along with a VR app Supernatural, Carb Manager, and a smartwatch to help improve the diabetic program. The reservation has been extremely shut down, not only is it difficult for us to visit, but now it’s difficult for people to get the interaction they need. Public transportation was shut down and most of the population is at high risk to COVID due to diabetes, old age, or disabilities.

RoboBroncs Season 19-20

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the robotics season was cut short. But this doesn't mean we didn't have fun! We worked on our robot, cat-dog, dating all the way back to January. In March we had our first competition, Utah Regionals. In Utah, we worked our best and did amazing, ending up qualifying for Nationals. We won the Chairman's Award, so many thanks to America Martinez, captain of the business team last year, for her dedication and hard work. After Utah, Colorado and Nationals were canceled due to COVID-19. However, we are excited to be back in action!
