Nerd Herd Team 687A Mid-season robot

Hi guys. I hope you all had a great time this season. This is just an update to where Team 687A has been through right now. With our robot and communication with the team, we are more prepared than ever. We will be competing in these following competitions:

  1. 2017 California State VRC High School Championship BAKERSFIELD (March 4, 2017)
  2. CREATE U.S. Open Robotics Championship - VEX HIGH SCHOOL DIVISION (April 6-8, 2017)

Here is our update video for the mid-season: Nerd Herd Team 687A (Mid-season) - YouTube

As always, we want to keep on touch with our alliances. If your team wants to contact us and form alliances, contact me by email or text.

Question, what size omnis do you use on the drive train? On the CAD they look like 2.75, but I can’t tell for sure.

We used 2.5in sized Omni Wheels.

After Team 687A won Sportsmanship Award in the 2017 States Championship BAKERSFIELD, we are unable to compete in CREATE U.S. Open.

Instead, team 687A will compete in the 2017 VEX Worlds Championship in Louisville, Kentucky. See you there.

When Sportmanship qualifies for Worlds

No offense to team 687a, but I don’t think sportsmanship should qualify for worlds…

Neither should the judges award.

I think this only involves in California since there are a lot of good robotics teams there. Check the awards tab in the California States Championship in Bakersfield.

And only for High School. There was a lot of confusion amongst the participants all day as to whether the list of qualifying awards on Robotevents was correct.

To be clear, there is no such thing as 2.5in Omni Wheels unless they are custom made, VEX sells 2.75,3.25, and 4in omni wheels
