    How do I reset my davison robotics email password?

    Ok, so if no one knows what the password is and you looked in the club for the correct password Examples: sponsorship club would have the password for [email protected] newsroom club would have the password for the news emails Then you would open a Support Request by following these simple steps Click Support - Support and the button that says New Request as shown below Now you would fill out the Support Request being as detailed as you can. Click Save at the bottom and support staff will go to the hosting server and reset the password and provide to you via the support case you created.

    Week 5

    Starting the beginning of our fifth week of the 2020 season, our team opened up our new robot lab to the community and sponsors to come and view. We presented our past robot and awards while also showing where we are now in terms of prototyping and CAD designs. As the CAD team is working hard to finalize details for assembly, the machining team has gotten busy with fabricating all of our specialty parts for both our practice bot and competition bot. Some examples our of special parts are tons of customs brackets and six shooter rails that are being assembled. The build team has gotten to work by attaching the intake arm and elevator to P-bot. Within the next week, we are striving to have a fully functional elevator and hook up the shooter to the practice bot chassis.

    Week 3/Week 4

    During weeks three and four of the 2020 season our team has been focused on finalizing the CAD of the robot. Using Autodesk Fusion 360 we have worked on all aspects of our robot finalizing the power cell launcher and the chassis. We have begun to create drawing enabling the machining group to start making frame rails for our practice bot. During this type our programmers have been refining the program for our mecanum drive.

  14. *|MC_PREVIEW_TEXT|* Issue #27 November 2019 You can’t pick the hand you’re dealt, but you can choose how you play your cards! FTC Teams Compete in Oxford By Dee Schneider Our FTC Middle School Team worked hard these last few weeks, getting their robots built and programmed, in preparation for the teams' first competition of the year. On Sunday, November 24th, the Wild Cards, Team #10058 and the Techna Cards, Team 9514 headed to Oxford Middle School to compete. The team literally re-built the Wild Cards' robot the night before the event after some issues were noted during practice driving. The team was also lucky to have a parent, Kari Bishop, help with programming the robots the week of the competition. In spite of the difficulties the teams ran into, they pulled it all together and were able to compete. These two teams placed 20th and 21st at the event, which was a great learning experience for this year's first-timers, as well as returning members. The teams plan to work at full steam after the Thanksgiving break to make some changes and be ready to win their next event held at Kettering University on December 7th. Once they win at Kettering, it will be on to the State competition December 13th and 14th. Come out and cheer on these awesome FTC teams, or follow them online at theorangealliance.org/teams/10058 or theorangealliance.org/teams/9514. Hill's FLL Jr. Teams Head to Bulldog Classic by Stephanie Hardesty Wow, what a fantastic competition for the Hill FLL Jr. Robotics Teams! BOOMTOWN was this year's theme for att FLL Jr. teams. Team 14895, Lego Jokers, Team 20747, Jokers Wild, and Team 20748, Cardinal Builders, competed on November 23rd at Kettering's Bulldog Classic Robotics Event. Each team had the honor of winning an award, and man, were they impressive! Lego Jokers, our veteran team, won the Creative Explorers Award, Jokers Wild, one of our new teams this year, won the Building and Discovery Award, and Cardinal Builders, our other new team this year-and also the youngest team with mostly kindergarteners- won the Cooperative Explorers Award. The judges were very impressed with each team member's knowledge of the city they built, and enjoyed hearing which part of the city each team member personally built and why they thought their city needed that particular building in it. The kids also enjoyed looking at all the other cities that were built by other teams and discussing their cities with them. Great job, Hill! Moving Day for House of Cards As our program continues to expand, so does our need for more space! Our FRC Team, House of Cards, now has their very own place to call home. While there are still details to work out and preparation, organization and cleaning to be done, the team is looking forward to their upcoming build season in their very own designated space. Stay tuned as we reveal sneak peeks of this exciting season ahead! Sharing the Love Our student mentors have been hard at work, helping our younger teams work towards their goals this year. These students who volunteer their time do it from the heart. There have been countless hours spent after school and on weekends, working under pressure to get things completed on time, while teaching these younger kids as they go. The parents, teachers, and adult mentors are so thankful for the knowledge and skill these high school students offer. Last weekend at the FLL Tournament held at Kettering University, House of Cards' own Austin Whitman, who is now a Kettering student, refereed matches and continued to teach and help the teams, including ours. As a college student, those Saturdays are precious, but the love of robotics is hard to resist.

Hahn's FLL Team Wins Big in Debut By Amie Martin Two weeks prior to competition, Hahn's new Robotics Team, Cardinal Coders, were unsure if they would even be competing. After a delayed start to the season and the logistics of starting a brand new team, time was of the essence. Practices were kicked up to 4-5 per week, and the kids got down to business. They all took turns programming, building, and setting up their robot, and when time was up, they were ready. Maybe they didn't have the robot of their dreams, but they had a functioning robot that would stand its own in competition. This FLL team headed to Kettering University on Saturday, November 23rd to compete against nearly 30 other teams. The team met with judges privately in small rooms for Robot Judging, Project Judging, and Core Values Judging, where they were very impressive and showed that they had truly worked as a team to complete all of their tasks. The most exciting parts were the head-to-head competitions. After a 55 point first round, the second round came in at 85, the third round at 150, and the fourth round at 190! The team showed so much improvement as the day went on, taking advantage of every minute they had to work on programming and perfecting their robot. At the end of competition, the Cardinal Coders were sitting in 8th place. The team earned the Research Award for their chosen project and they were congratulated with thunderous applause from the biggest crowd of fans there! Finally, the five teams qualifying for States were announced and when Cardinal Coders heard their team number, 48875, they went wild! It was definitely a day to remember. The team plans to regroup this week and begin preparing for their State tournament in the upcoming week. Congrats, Cardinal Coders!

    Week 2

    One of the main tasks of this week was to have a fully functioning and programmed mecanum wheel drive. In order to do this our programmers bench marked source codes from FIRST libraries and then made their own program using control loops. The mechanism took three days of tuning to become up to our quality standards. At the same time, the mechanical group has been prototyping the power cell launcher, changing variables such as arc length, material, angle, and motor speed. As of Saturday our tests have provided enough results to start CADing and building a true p-bot mechanism.

    Week 1 -> Design

    During Week One, our team worked on design concepts. We all shot out ideas, and by the end of the first night, we had a basic idea of how we plan to build our robot. Our CAD team has already started to work together to design prototypes. They are also starting on the chassis CAD and power cell extake design. We are set on the idea of having a low bot and trying to have a lighter robot from previous years. As an experienced team, we have the ability to play every aspect of the game, we strategized to shoot from the trench. Our 10th year season should be a good one! Go House of Cards!!
