The SMS Robotics teams are chugging ahead full steam with two meets left in the season! Come and cheer us on at the Pendleton Convention Center Tuesday, December 12th. Robot inspections begin at 4:30 while competition begins around 5:30. Our last meet will be Saturday, January 20th from 8am – noon. Special thanks to Mr. Steve Lawn from the UAS Range up at the Pendleton Airport. He has worked with our programmers to help solve the numerous glitches we encounter along the way to robotics dominance!! One of the guiding principles in robotics is the idea of “Gracious Professionalism” – helping other teams and receiving help from them. Examples of this at our last meet include one of our teams giving up their battery to another team after they weren’t able to compete and loaning out charging cords, tools, and robot parts to ensure all teams are able to pass inspection and continue competing. However, once out on the field, the competition is fierce!
