WELCOME

The Titan Robotics Club is a middle and high school robotics program at the International School in Bellevue, Washington. We aim to spread awareness and raise interest within our school and our community about robotics and the programs of FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology). As part of the annual FIRST Robotics Compeition, FIRST Tech Challenge and FIRST Lego League, our team of over 60 students work with field professionals and adult mentors to earn valuable life experience with robotics, technology and science. You can learn more about our programs as well as FIRST by selecting each from the above navigation bar.

Hopper Mechanism Prototype

Hey everyone
We worked on the hopper prototype in the meeting today and successfully prooved the concepts in it's design

We took a treadmill and used that for the veritcal belt, and used an old roller powered by a drill for the second roller (used to pick balls up off the ground)

Here are some videos of it in action!

- it can roll balls in from the ground

- it can spit balls back out the bottom onto the floor (and into the human player station)

- and it can load balls into the loading area for the shooting mechanism

We're having another meeting tomorrow after school where we will further test these concepts and apply them to the design
