Takeoff

Since the end of build season, Team 4201, the Vitruvian Bots, has done so much, and we are ecstatic to share!

Our first competition, the Orange County Regional competition was held at the OC Fairgrounds. We competed against 41 teams including 2 international teams! The three-day event was full of exciting matches, and our team was able to rank 5th with a record of 10-5-1.

We are also proud to announce that we secured our spot in the Houston World Championships by winning the Chairman’s Award for the 4th time in our history. The judges at the Orange County Regional were blown away by the impact our team has had on our participants and community. We were the team that was able to best demonstrate progress towards FIRST’s mission of transforming our culture.

Our Chairman’s team also presented to the judges about our team’s vision and impact throughout our history! We learned a lot from the other great teams at Championships and we are looking forward to continuing our mission of increasing the STEM opportunities in our community by creating the future innovators and leaders that will solve the world’s tough problems.

Los Angeles Regional

The Los Angeles Regional competition was held at the Da Vinci Schools gym for the second time in a row. We hosted 42 teams including 2 international teams. With several exciting matches and team work, our alliance was awarded the Regional Finalist Award! Our robot (Takeoff) was ranked 4th and had the most consistent autonomous sequence of the competition. Our ability to consistently sink 5-balls into the upper hub helped us receive the Autonomous Award for the second time in our team’s history!

Some key accomplishments from the Los Angeles Regional include winning the Autonomous Award, Regional Finalist, ranking #4 out of 42 teams, reaching the finals in Alliance #2 (with Team 4470 from Placentia, CA and Team 7157 from Brea, CA), and our alumna and mentor, Joy Uehara, winning the Woodie Flowers Finalist Award
