On January 15-19th at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, 12 University teams competed in the Western Engineering Competition. In the Senior Design Challenge UBC and SFU placed 1st and 3rd.
The Robosavages sent three teams down to Lake Washington to compete. Exothermic Robotics 10Q picked 2K and became the eventual tournament winners alongside 917B. 2D and 2Z both made the playoffs with Team 1492 W.A.S.A.B.I. Robotics, falling short in the semifinals.
2K also came home with the Excellence Award and two top skills awards.
Great effort from all three teams. See you all soon at the BC Provincials!

Thirteen Gladstone Robosavages teams attended the BC Fall Qualifier at McMath Secondary today in Richmond. We continued our strong start to the Toss Up Season, with 9 of the 13 teams making the elimination round. When the dust settled, the Gladstone alliance came out on top versus the Isfeld alliance. It was a close best of 3 that was decided by a few points each match. High hanging with a ball is scary.
2D – 1st seed (7-0)

2K – 8th seed (6-1)

The Robosavages had a great first tournament this season. The event was held at Enver Creek Secondary in Surrey B.C. and they even did a better job than last year at hosting PYRS first event of the BC season.
We will be taking 9 teams (we hope…still not all finished) and competing with a 37 other teams from around the province.

Summer break is over, school has started and we are back in the Robo Dojo (room V105). We have the new game set in the room (thank you Mr Balcom) and have started building our robots for the new Toss Up game.
