The Ogden Robotics
team has had quite a story. We started in the fall of 2016 as a small team working in the furnace room of an elementary school. Freshmen students working on robots that we knew nothing about. Thanks to the graciousness of our mentors, which have supported us throughout our slow process, we've gained the determination to learn and be better ourselves each meet. We re-initiated the Ogden Robotics
team as Freshman and were still uncomfortable and awkward with each other; we quickly overcame this boundary and became tight friends and extremely productive teammates. We started with our FTC
team; Redhot robotics. Our rookie year we won the FIRST
Gracious Professionalism award and the Judge’s award. Two of the highest honors a robotics team can receive. Our second year we placed 2nd in the Chicago city competition. But our ambition did not stop there. We decided to move to FRC
. A league higher than the aforementioned FTC
league. In FRC
the team will be constructing and programming a robot that will weight approximately 120 lbs with a height of 4 feet.
Fast forward to Spring of 2019. Our FTC
team came back from the Illinois regional competition after emerging champions in Chicago city competition. Our rookie FRC
team competed against some of the most elite and sophisticated robots FRC
has to offer. At the end of the long three day competition we were happy just to compete, we thought our season was over. But at the end of the day we won The Rookie All-Star Award
. Which automatically advances us to the FIRST Championship
in Detroit MIchigan.
