Hello. We are Team #14147, the High Voltage Couch Bananas, and we compete in STEM competitions through First Tech Challenge, or FTC. We are in our second FTC competition season from Eagle Idaho, and are First Lego League Alumni.
Guided by coaches, mentors, and other professionals, a team of up to 15 members, competes in a multi-stage competition. The goal of First Tech Challenge is to develop future engineers, designers, and problem-solvers through an exciting educational challenge. Each team will have to compete in tournaments with a motorized robot on a 12 foot by 12 foot game field. Each season revolves around a single theme, that influences the game field, it’s obstacles, and your team’s robotic strategy. There is one presentation your team must give on it’s engineering notebook, and it’s contents. (For example: Outreach, Business Plan, Design sketches, Photos, etc.)
Our 2019-20 Skystone Team consists of 10 members, 3 coaches, and multiple new mentors. We range from 7th to 11th grade, and attend 5 different schools. One thing that most of us have in common, however, is that we play soccer outside of Robotics season!
Thank you for visiting our site, and we hope you find something below that encourages you, inspires you, or challenges you.
