Firing Up Robotics

The PyramidRoger Johnson develops and leads the robotics team at Osceola High School.  He has taken them to FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics competitions each year since 2003, and they have done great!  In 2012 the “Moose” came in second in the Orlando Regional FIRST Robotics Competition to the team that won the national championship.

Not surprisingly, John Marhoefer, CEO of Entech Creative, has a particular interest in supporting engineering education and met with Roger to see how we could support his educational efforts. The result so far has been a continuing dialog regarding “Moose” needs and the pyramid!

Robot on Pyramid

Each year the FIRST Robotics competition game changes.  This year the challenge was to build a climbing robot that can shoot Frisbees in the goal.  Since the weight of the robot requires the pyramid be built out of steel pipe, we were happy to donate the cut steel pipe and other materials required to build a pyramid to test their robot design.

So far so good!  Stay tuned for the 2013 Orlando Regional Competition results. Go Moose!  To see the Moose at “work” go to, Moose Harlem Shake
