HHS Robotics at FIRST World Championship
On April 18, 2017, 15 students from Hagerty High School Robotics Team 4717, The Mechromancers, traveled to Houston, TX to compete at the FIRST World Championship with their one-of-kind robot, Woodrow T. Bot, AKA Tim Burr. The competition took place April 19-22 at the George R. Brown Convention Center. Their robot is light weight, fast, and can shoot an average of 18 particles (balls) into their center vortex. It can also perform autonomously (no human control) for 30 seconds shooting particles, pushing beacons, and knocking off the big cap ball (yoga ball) to park in the center vortex for an average of 110 points. During a match, the robot’s average score is 220 points. Its unique design won them the PTC Design Finalist and garnered much attention from around the world. It is built almost entirely with wood, using custom parts that were laser cut and 3-D printed at UCF’s Innovation Lab. 128 top-ranked state teams from the world, including Australia, Canada, China, Israel, Lebanon, Mexico, and South Africa were among the elite teams competing in 2 divisions; Franklin (32 teams) and Jemison (32 teams). Team 4717 was in the Jemison Division. They played 9 qualifying matches Wednesday-Friday and finished in 23rd place. However, top ranked teams were lobbying for them to join their alliance for the Jemison Division Semi-Finals. Early Saturday morning, Team 9915, Robo Thunder (ranked 2nd in division) from Bellevue, WA invited them to join their alliance. They also invited Team 7203 KNO3 from Tampa, FL to form their 3 team alliance. They would play in the Minute Maid field, a first for the FIRST program. The 3-team alliance won the semifinals, making them the Jemison Division Winning Alliance. They advanced to the finals to play against the Winning Alliance from the Franklin Division Saturday night. It was an exciting finals to say the least. Both alliances tied 1-1 after two matches. In a nail biting final match to claim the World Championship title, the team put up an impressive offensive fight to the very end. They are 2nd (Finalist Alliance Award) in the WORLD! Shout out to the incredible driving and coaching team consisting of Nicholas Injo, Andrew Pereiro, and Rajiv Narayanan. A HUGE thank you goes to Mr. Don Harper, Mentor Extraordinaire, who has taught the students so much about engineering, design, CAD, and programming. The presentation team and supporting members consisted of Haven Carter, Katie Guise, Victoria Guise, Aashni Patel, Mason Dettman, Drew DiMaggio, Austin English, Nicholas Injo, Zachary Irving, Matthew Mason, Neel Maity, Rajiv Narayanan, Greshan Naidoo, Ryan Nelson, Andrew Pereiro. They made sure the team was well-represented in the Pit and stands, talked to many judges about the team’s robot, engineering notebook, outreach, and business plan as well as displayed Gracious Professionalism to other teams during the competition. They proudly and loudly cheered for our team and other teams as well during the all matches. Special thanks to the awesome parents, especially those who traveled with the team to be there and cheered for the team in the stands! We are grateful for Mrs. Narayanan and Mr. and Mrs. Nelson. Thank you to the sponsors and donors who generously gave money via gofundme (set up by Ms. Dore Carter). Thanks to Ms. Torres for setting a Spirit Night at Beef O’Brady’s for the team. Your generosity goes a long way and ensures the students are fed, have rides, and a warm and safe place to sleep. They will remember and treasure this experience forever. The team is also grateful for the support of Hagerty’s Administrative staff as well as the School Board of Seminole County. Hagerty Robotics is coached by Mrs. Po Dickison and Mr. Stefan Ibarguen, with assistance from Mrs. Mercedes Agramonte-Harper. Their mentors include experts from Siemens, Lockheed Martin, and Verizon.

They won the semifinals, with one match that was a tie. They advanced to the finals and won that as well! Ultimately, they won the entire NATIONAL championship UNDEFEATED for their division!!!

Then they played against the winners of the Pemberton Division and won 2/3 matches and set the new world record for highest score (340) without penalties during a match!

Shout out to the incredible driving and coaching team consisting of Nicholas Injo, Andrew Pereiro, Rajiv Narayanan, and Neel Maity. A HUGE thank you goes to Mr. Don Harper, Mentor Extraordinaire, who is instrumental in robot build and design, programming, CAD, and notebook help. The team couldn’t have done as well as they did without him.

The presentation team and supporting members consisted of Haven Carter, Katie Guise, Victoria Guise, Aashni Patel, Mason Dettman, Drew DiMaggio, Austin English, Nicholas Injo, Sam Jones, Edgar Madruga, Matthew Mason, Neel Maity, Tyler McCormick, Rajiv Narayanan, Ryan Nelson, Andrew Pereiro, Tom Pothen, and Jacob Steinebronn. They made sure the team was well-represented, talked to many judges about the team’s robot, engineering notebook, outreach, and business plan as well as displayed Gracious Professionalism to other teams during the competition.

Special thanks to the awesome parents, especially those who helped drive and were able to be there and cheer for the team in the stands! The team is thankful for Mr. Dettman, Mr. and Mrs. DiMaggio, Mr. and Mrs. Nelson, Mrs. Jones, Ms. Sharma, and Ms. Torres. The team also sends Mrs. Nelson much gratitude for taking the lead on decorating the tent in the Pit. It was wonderful having such a spirited and fun home away from home for the robot during the competition. The support from the parents mean so much to the team!

Awards they won include the coveted INSPIRE Award (highest award given to a team), Winning Alliance (Captain), 3rd Place PTC Design Award, and 2nd Place Rockwell Collins Innovate Award. They are the ONLY Florida team to win the Inspire Award at a national level competition. It is very rare for a team to win both the Inspire and Winning Alliance awards!

Team 4717, Mechromancers, represented Hagerty Robotics at the South Super Regional National Robotics Competition in San Antonio, Texas on March 9-11. Over the two full days of competition, students presented in front of a panel of judges, submitted an engineering notebook, and competed in nine robot matches. With a competition record of 6-3, they were chosen to be on a three team alliance for the semi-finals. They finally lost in the semi-finals, bringing the robot part of the competition to an end. 

At the award ceremony, we waited with hopes to be picked for an award that would send us to the World Championship. It turned out better than we ever expected when we heard our team number called as runner up for most of the initial awards. Finally, we heard our name for 1st Place Innovate Award and we knew we had secured our spot to compete at Worlds. We went on to get 3rd place in the highest award, the Inspire Award. This award is given to teams who have the whole package; an outstanding engineering notebook, an innovative robot, and overall outstanding team dynamic. The top three places for the Inspire Award also qualify for Worlds. 

The team felt a huge sense of accomplishment after the award ceremony as they saw all their hard work paid off. It was nice to see other teams, mentors, coaches, and volunteers coming over to congratulate the students on their achievement. 

Hagerty Robotics is fortunate to have the mentorship of Don Harper, who has given so much of his time and expertise in designing, building, and programming the robot. He has also taught the kids in the use of CAD software, Java programming, and sensor interfacing. The students are very lucky to use the Texas Instruments Innovation Lab at UCF as well as interact with college students on campus. The robot consists of 3D printed  parts, laser cut parts, processors, and sensors, all of which are the result of the interaction with the Innovation Lab. 

The students are coached by Po Dickison and Stefan Ibarguen and meet twice a week after school in addition to working with Mr. Harper at UCF. Special thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Nelson who worked tirelessly getting the students where they needed to be and on time! Also, thank you to Mrs. McCreight for the very cool picture of our robot!

Thank you to the Hagerty administration for their support and for believing in us! We would also like to thank our sponsors and parents for helping make our dream of going to Worlds come true. This is the first time in Hagerty Robotics history that a team has advanced to the World Championship!

New World Record Set By Hagerty Robotics

The Hagerty Robotics teams (4227 and 4717) competed in their 3rd and final regular tournament on Dec. 19th at Oviedo HS. Each team’s robot went in the competition with the goal to perform well and score maximum points.  Both teams were randomly paired with other teams to play a total of 7 matches each throughout the day. Team 4717 placed first and team 4227 placed fourth at this competition.

Click here for photos of the event

During match 24, team 4717, along with its alliance partner, team 8996 from Brevard County Schools, scored 348 points, breaking the world record for the most points scored during a match! During the End Game, both alliance partners’ robots climbed up the mountain to hang and claimed the All Clear Signal, each earning 100 points apiece. Both robots scored major points during the first 30-second autonomous period as well as during the driver controlled (teleop) portion. Their score and match play made social media headlines within seconds of breaking the world record!

They held on to this record for two solid weeks until another alliance partner and its team in Michigan scored 352 points during a match at their league championship.

Will the teams be able to beat this high score? Come find out at our league championship on Saturday, January 16 held in the Auxiliary Gym at Hagerty. The event is free and open to the public! Match plays begin at approximately 10:30 AM until 3:45 PM. 

This season’s robotics challenge or game has been the most difficult in Hagerty Robotics history. With the programming language changing from RobotC to Java and an all-new control system using only two Android smart phones to control the robot, both teams dove head-on to tackle this challenge. Team members had to master this new programming language, design and build a robot that can score points on the ground as well as climb up a mountain to hang in eight short weeks. Teams also must keep a detailed engineering notebook documenting their team dynamics, engineering and design, strategy, outreach, and business plan. In addition, teams must create a 3-minute video for judging. These two components count 25% each while the robot's performance during matches counts 50% of a team's advancement to the state and national competition. The top 24 teams in the state are invited to compete at the state competition. Currently, there are over 150 teams and 4227 is ranked 23rd while 4717 is ranked 28.

The FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) game design committee came up with the FTC Res-Q game for teams to brainstorm, plan, design, and build a robot to perform specific tasks autonomously as well as driver operated to earn points during a 2 minute 30 second match. Visit
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=inwQ_ykNKQI#t=26 to watch the game animation and explanation.

Hagerty Robotics is in its 6
th year and currently has 30 student members in grades 9-12 and is coached by Po Dickison and Stefan Ibarguen. Don Harper is their mentor from UCF and has been instrumental in the success of both teams. He provides access to the Innovation Lab as well as volunteering countless hours to ensure the robots are successful and competitive.  Learn more about them at http://hagertyhighrobotics.weebly.com/

Making Hagerty Better One Project at a Time

by Elizabeth MarvinMy 
Gold Award project targets negative thoughts young ladies have when they are looking in the mirror. My audience is not only the girls at my school now, but also the girls to come in the future. Most young ladies experience self-doubt and insecurities about their image. I want my murals to promote positivity and self-love.I placed the murals in every girl’s bathroom in Upper House. My hope is that the ladies at my school will enjoy the murals and take selfies with them to spread my message. I put a hashtag at the bottom of each mural that reads #IAmBeautiful to allow the girl’s followers to see that she has accepted that she is beautiful. The girls will be able to show how they have been empowered and be able to spread positivity and confidence through social media. I have an Instagram account that I will collect the selfies on. The Instagram handle is youarebeautifulhhs.
