St. Cecilia Academy Robotics Team attends Alabama State FTC Championship
On February 10, St. Cecilia Academy attended the Alabama State First Tech Challenge (FTC) Championship at Hampton Cove Middle School in Hampton Cove, Alabama. St. Cecilia Academy placed ninth out of 30 teams and won five of the six matches.
The St. Cecilia Robotics Team #9912 was awarded the Rockwell Innovate Award.
The Rockwell Collins Innovate Award celebrates a Team that thinks outside the box, and has the ingenuity and inventiveness to make their designs come to life. This judged award is given to the Team that has the most innovative and creative Robot design solution to any specific components in the FIRST Tech Challenge game. Elements of this award include elegant design, robustness, and 'out of the box' thinking related to design. This award may address the design of the whole Robot, or of a sub-assembly attached to the Robot. The creative component must work consistently, but a Robot does not have to work all the time during Matches to be considered for this award. The Team's Engineering Notebook must include journal entries to show the design of the component or components and the Team's Robot to be eligible for this award. Entries must describe how the Team arrived at their solution.
