Skynet Students Turn their Drawings into Realities

With a pencil in one hand and a sheet of paper on top of a classroom desk, Hollace Avent and Aislyn Clark were able to turn their drawings into a reality that has been an important part of our team promotional materials.

Avent spent long hours working on this project and completed it almost entirely independently. He sat down in our robotics classroom to sketch out some ideas and a few practices later, was able to learn some graphic design from our mentors to develop a professional banner.

Clark was also developed a team avatar to match our team mascot, the Terminator. She frequently works on her tablet and pixel by pixel, created an 8-bit Terminator avatar.

How about a game of "Where's Waldo?" to see if you can find our mascot.

How About Self-Driving Robots

With a dedicated programming team lead by Nathan Walker and assisted by Brayton Kerekffy, the result was just as good as self-driving cars which was our self-driving robot!

After dedicated work, hours of practice, and a whole lot of encoders, the result was priceless and flexible autonomous programs.

Teams PowerUp

How do you PowerUp?

Skynet working on the project.
At our Lake Oswego competition, Skynet's business team members created and shared their PowerUp as a way to welcome teams to the event. Lacy Bott, Alaina Clar, Aislyn Clark, Hailey Brown, and Nick McKinney along with Skynet's alumni Jared Bott made over 35 "Pacman" medallions to go along with this year's theme, FIRST PowerUp which features arcade-like components.

Check out our team PowerUp!
