It’s week 4 and the CopperBots are competing at Lake Superior State University in Sault Ste. Marie. In the weeks after competing in Escanaba we’ve done some re-design and made a ton of improvements.

Escanaba, week 2.
It’s 2023 and there’s an new game. First Charged-Up. It’s been a while since we’ve posted here. Since then, we’ve built our new robot for this year’s competition and we’ve also been to our first 2023 competition in Escanaba. Unfortunately, we were plagued by breakdowns and field disconnections. But in the end we persevered and fixed what we could. Entering play-offs we were in 17th place.
We were chosen by the 6th place alliance of teams 4392 and 7768 and made a good run in the end-game competition. Now we’re back in the workshop and re-engineering our intake and placement arm. We’ll be in Sault Ste Marie at Lake Superior State University next weekend sporting all of our revisions.
The CopperBots, like all organizations across the world, have been impacted by the Coronavirus. FIRST has decided to replay the 2020 season in 2021 due to last year’s cancellation.

At the Kingsford District Event, the CopperBots ranked 5th with a qualifications record of 9 wins and 3 losses. We had a great run in quals, with the highest teleop (midgame) scoring total at the event! Then, we were picked second by the #2 alliance captain, Team 6637 the Betawolves. We battled through our team’s technical issues in the quarterfinals, but our captain’s robot breaking in the semifinals caused us to get knocked out of the tournament. Our team earned our third prestigious Engineering Inspiration Award in four years, and our Team Captain Lowell Torola won the Dean’s List Award.
Our 2020 season was cancelled after our Kingsford event, which was a crushing blow after our very promising start. Needless to say, we are very excited and hopeful for the planned replaying of the 2020 season in 2021. Stay tuned to our website and Facebook page for updates!
