What a great 1st season of FIRST Robotics Competitions! As the Phoenix Coding Academy Python Robotics, we were able to earn Rookie All-Stars in the Los Angeles, California regional robotics competition as well as the Rookie Inspiration award at the AZ West Regional, hosted in Phoenix, Arizona. As a result, we earned a spot to compete at the World Championships held in Houston, Texas. As a team, we’ve done so much for the spirit of gracious professionalism which we feel made a large impact on other teams. We were a rookie team that overcame the odds when they were against us and persevered through every hardship we faced. These hardships include being a brand new school with only a freshman and sophomore class with no experience in F.I.R.S.T Robotics and really no idea what we were getting ourselves into. We had done so much as a rookie team from making phone chargers with a foster kid organization, teach middle school students how to code with Arduino, held youth workshops on how to solder, and assisted veteran teams on construction of the robot that even the judges were impressed and recognized all of our passion and hard work.

 Thank you for the previous support and donations. However, we ask for your help once again to keep this going; let’s get to the World championship again this season!! All we ask is for a donation in order for our team to prepare for the coming season.  Let’s go Python Robotics!!!!!!!

10,000 - Would pay for Competition fee, along with hotel accommodations, and food expenses.

25,000 - If we reach twenty-five-thousand dollars, it would pay for hotel accommodation, travel expenses, food and would allow our whole team to attend World Championships

During the 2017-2018 Spring Break session, our very own Python Robotics FRC Team 6833 from Phoenix Coding Academy participated in the FIRST Robotics Competition LA Regionals in Pomona, California. This rookie team is composed of 15 freshmen and sophomore students from Coding and one foreign-exchange student from Central High School.

Of the 54 teams that participated in this regional competition, the Python Robotics team ranked at number 15 out of 54 at the end of the preliminary games. The students were heavily scouted by higher-seeded teams, and were asked to be in an alliance with one of the top 8 teams that were guaranteed to go on to the next round; an offer they graciously accepted. As a result, they made it in to the quarter-finals where they were ultimately eliminated.

At each regional competition, there are only five slots available for teams to move on to the next round of competition: Championships in Houston, Texas. The three teams in the winning alliance took three of those five positions moving on to the next round. The fourth spot went to the team that won the Chairman's Award; an award that the Coding Academy Python Robotics team was ineligible of winning due to their rookie status. The fifth and final spot was awarded to the recipients of the Rookie All-Star Award. This award was granted to the rookie team that best exemplified what the FIRST Robotics Competition stands for and has a working robot that met the goals of the competition. The Coding Academy Python Robotics Team 6833 won the Rookie All-Star Award and clinched the final spot in the Championships in Houston.


The Championships in Houston will take place April 18th-21st.
