The Marlbots were the winning alliance captain and won the “Design” award in recognition of their overall design process and use of CAD to design and fabricate their robot. The Marlbots have advanced to the LA Regional Championship, which will be held on Saturday March 9 at Monrovia High School.
Curiosity received a ton of recognition from the judges, including 2nd Runner up for “Think” Award (for detailed documentation in their engineering notebook), 2nd runner up for “Innovate” Award (for a unique and well designed robot mechanism), 2nd Runner Up Control (for implementing electronic systems that help the driver or the robot during autonomous navigation), and a won the “Judges” award (for their project to create prosthetics for dogs)
Cosmos won 4 out of 5 matches and also received the 1st Runner Up for the “Promote” Award (for creating a compelling promotional video)
Asteria ended qualifying with the FIFTH highest offensive power ranking, a metric that measures point scoring ability. They actually had the highest ranking of any Marlborough team in this metric.
All four teams fought hard, kept a positive attitude, and did a fantastic job representing the school. We were extremely proud of the poise, passion, and support for one another that the Marlborough teams exhibited. Congratulations to the Marlborough robotics teams!
