Offseason Update

Apex Robotics had a wonderful offseason and looks forward to competing in FIRST STEAMworks in 2017! Here are some updates from our summer and fall.

Apex Robotics had a great opportunity to travel to San Jose for Chezy Champs hosted by 254. Thank you to all the wonderful teams at the event for making the competition amazing! We all had a great time, and despite getting knocked out in quarterfinals we still met a lot of new people and made new friends.

Our third robot project is still happening! Despite delays the drivebase and shooter are complete and the electronics/pneumatics are being mounted now. Only a couple more weeks until reveal!

We had a wonderful opportunity to demo at the Barnes & Noble Mini Maker Faire. Through the event we were able to share the mission of FIRST and demonstrate our robot. Thank you to all the people who made this a success!

Again, thank you all for a great offseason and we cannot wait until next year!
