Techbrick FTC Team 7, the Voltage Vipers Competed in the Washington DC Qualifier at Sidwell Friends School on December 9, 2012. Team members included Will, John, Mark, Kevin, Callum, Jarrett, and Amos. The team competed in seven qualifying matches during the day, and then were the third alliance selection for the finalists matches.
The judges were impressed with the teamís unique approach, as the robot scored in all phases of the game (autonomous, tele-op, and end-game).
The Vipers were one of the few teams to score in the autonomous program, placing a ring on the left goal post.
In the teleop period, the Vipers could score rings on the low goals as well as weight the rings to achieve the ring bonus. In the end game, the robot deployed a ramp which allowed another robot to drive on top of it, scoring a 35 point bonus. The Vipers earned the Innovate Award and were finalists for the Design and Motivate Awards.
