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.

 


 

Our latest announcements:

PTC Design Award for the FTC Team!

Congratulations to Titan Robotics FTC Team. They won the PTC Design
Award at the Mill Creek Regional and qualified to go to State in early
January!

The team did amazingly well Sunday and everyone should be extremely proud!
They ranked 2nd, just behind Team 417 Swerve from Woodinville at the end of the elimination rounds! Although they were eliminated in the Semifinals
after 3 rounds, the team and robot performance was extraordinary.

We want to thank all the mentors that made this possible: Mike Tsang, Dave McDermott and Doug Mar; as well as Jeff Bunch, who was with the
team in Spirit ... as he is traveling in Germany this holiday! Also to
Microsoft, who has allowed us to practice at their facility for the past 6
weeks.

*PTC Design Award*

The PTC Design Award recognizes design elements of the robot that are both
functional and aesthetic. All successful robots have innovative design
aspects however the PTC Design Award is presented to teams that incorporate
industrial design elements into their solution. These elements could
simplify the robot giving it a clean look, decorate the robot, or otherwise
express the creativity of the team. The winning design should not compromise
the practical operation of the robots but compliment its purpose.

Summer Camp -- ROBO SUMO

For several years, the Titan Robotics Club holds a week-long summer camp almost entire planned and run by high school students. It features NXT LEGO robots and Adobe Flash. Teams of usually four students and two high school mentors have less than five days to design, build, and program a LEGO robot that will compete autonomously – that is, without any sort of remote control. This is done using sensors and clever programming!

 

This year’s challenge is fairly simple: push the other robot out of the sumo ring. However, this will not be as easy as it seems!

 

Summer camp will run from 20 June 2011 – 24 June 2011, 8:00am – 2:30pm. The pricing is as follows:

Robot Camp: $200

Flash Camp: $150

Both Camps: $300

 

As usual, the camp will be held at the International School (15305 SE 49th PL Bellevue, WA 98006).

 

We'll be putting up a page entirely dedicated to Summer Camp very soon, so check this website often!

The page is up! Please go to: http://titanrobotics.net/summer2011

 

We'll also be implementing an online registration process, so please be aware of that.

If you have any questions, please contact the camp coordinator at camp-coordinator@titanrobotics.net or (425) 463 – 8615!
