A special THANK YOU to Bluefin Robotics for once again graciously hosting a mentor/engineering brainstorming and strategy session at their great facility right down the street in Quincy. We say “Team HYPER wouldn’t be possible without the help/support of [insert sponsors/students/teachers/alumni/parents here]” a lot, but with Bluefin, it really is true. Bluefin Robotics’ sponsorship of our team makes all our efforts possible.
It is always helpful to get a chance to sit down as a group of professionals/mentors and really dig into the nuances of this year’s game, building upon all the hard brainstorming work our students have been doing this first week of the build season. The additional minds and expert perspectives help us inform our decisions for building a great robot together. We can’t wait to bring back your ideas and feedback (and hopefully more of you!) to the robotics area and magically turn it all into a functioning robot. Continue Reading »
The first build schedule has been posted for the 2016 Season. As always happens, this schedule is subject to change through the season, so be sure to check the website, your email, and the printout posted in the robotics area for the latest updated version.
FIRST Stronghold has been revealed! The 2016 Season has officially started!! For anyone anxiously waiting to read this year’s rules in order to be as prepared as possible for our first Build Season Meeting, the password for the encrypted game files is: @Ahead)Together!FRC^2016
Edit: Thanks Jin!! Decrypted versions of the game files here
The big moment is almost here! January 9, 2016 @ 1030AM the kickoff stream goes live for the 2016 FRC game. Watch below or here (if the embedded stream isn’t working). We’ll be taking the 2016 team photo as well, so remember to wear your team shirt (or a blue/orange shirt if you’re a rookie and don’t have a team shirt yet).
Hello and welcome! To the new HYPER Online, website of FIRST Team 69: QPS & Bluefin: HYPER Robotics. To help mark our 20th Build Season (yeah, we’ve been around for a few years–decades actually) we’ve built a new site. Fully responsive via the Foundation Framework, the new site is WordPress (just like our old one!) which allows any member of the team to help contribute content (blog posts, pages, photos, & more).
Please bear with us, as the site isn’t 100% done yet. But we wanted to make the move before this season was done. We’ll have more content up as we go, including photo galleries spanning across our history some even from all the way back in 1996 (before the kids on our team this year were even born… feel old yet?).
