RoboHovers, a ROBOTERRA Grant Recipient, Goes to 2016 FRC Hawaii Regional
(Santa Clara, March 28, 2016) RoboHovers (FRC Team 6227), a RoboTerra grant recipient from Xi'an China, departed for the 2016 FRC Hawaii Regional on March 27.
One of the 12 teams supported by RoboTerra, RoboHovers is the highest ranked FRC team from West China. During the six weeks of the build season, RoboHovers received weekly guidance from RoboTerra engineers. In particular, one of the mentors was a former FRC Championship team leader, who was able to walk the team through every aspect of the competition.
RoboTerra engineers speak highly of this team for their excellent time management and problem-solving abilities. Although this is a rookie team, the members quickly picked up essential knowledge and skillset of robotics by using RoboTerra's Origin Kit and CastleRock online learning platform. They also demonstrated creativity in the process of building their robots. This week from March 30 to April 2, the whole team of 25 members will be competing on the 2016 FRC Hawaii Regional. To better prepare the team for the competition, a RoboTerra engineer from our R&D center in Silicon Valley also flew back to China and accompanied the team to Hawaii.
At RoboTerra, we are proud to recognize the schools, teams, and organizations who share our fervor for robotics and vision to cultivate the highest caliber robotics education for the next generation of STEM innovators. Apart from this team, RoboTerra also supported nine teams through the "Grants 2015 Program" for their global impacts and two teams for their active engagement with the FRC community on SNS sites like Instagram. We also hold weekly events for FRC teams to communicate with each other in our Silicon Valley office.
