For the first time, No Mythic traveled to Duluth to the summer Gitchi Gummi Get Together. This 1 1/2 day mini-regional is hosted by the Duluth East Daredevils, and features more matches and more networking time than most mini-regionals. Our team co-scouted with the Robettes, which was a huge success. One highlight of the event this year was the mentor match. Watch mentors try to control the robots and move gears below.
Nine students, mentors and alumni volunteered to help at the Minnesota State High School League Competition this weekend, getting a behind-the-scenes look at the work it takes to put on a robotics competition. Yeah team!
University of Minnesota’s Triangle fraternity is sponsoring No Mythic for at least the third year in a row. Fraternity members came out Sunday to see the robot drive, pick up gears, and climb. They asked great questions about the drive train, CAD, batteries, 3-D printed parts, and more. Thank you Triangle!
We celebrate the things that really matter to us, and this year our had a lot to celebrate! Each and every member of our community, including each student, mentor, parent, sponsor and more was necessary to build a robot and a community that earned a spot to the World Championships this year.
At North Star, our breakneck drive team took our rigorously engineered robot all the way to finals. They played well, match after match, ending up on the 6th seed alliance. We lost – only to the first seed alliance, earning a ticket to FIRST World Championship!
