Puncher Robotics: So Far This Year

Puncher Robotics: So Far This Year 
By: Destiny Reed 

What is FIRST Robotics? FIRST stands for “For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology,” and is a program that focuses on getting students involved in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) programs.

Puncher Robotics, Team 3288, has been participating in the FIRST Robotics Competition for eight years now, and each year brings more excitement. Each year, FIRST designs a new game. This year, the game was FIRST Power Up! This game gave robots the task of picking up yellow game cubes and presented them with the challenge of placing cubes in three possible positions to gain more points for the alliance, meaning that a strategy was definitely necessary for each match.

This season, Puncher Robotics got the opportunity to play at the Colorado Regional in Denver. Upon arrival, they had a robot that didn’t work, but within the span of a day, the team got the robot to work. With each match, the robot and drivers got better and better, and they ended up ranked 26th out of 52. Unfortunately, they weren’t picked on an alliance for the finals, but remained hopeful for the next competition.

The next week, Puncher Robotics participated in the Idaho Regional in Boise. The matches went great and the team had a great showing. At the end of the regional they were ranked 27th out of 39. The team was fortunately picked by the third ranked team and got to compete on their alliance. Together, they beat the sixth ranked, and second ranked alliances. Then, they got to compete for the championship, but sadly lost. All is well though, because they ended up qualifying for the World Championships!

This year, the World Championships will be held in Houston, Texas, from April 18-21. Team 3288 is very excited to go and compete with some of the best teams in the world. This is often a once in a lifetime opportunity, and they’re grateful for it. To get the chance to go, Puncher Robotics has opened a gofundme site to help raise funding for the trip.

Puncher Robotics would like to thank all of their sponsors. Without their gracious sponsors, none of this would be possible. If you have any questions about the program, contact mentor Steve Nelson at snelson@sublette9.org.

Pool Hours

posted Apr 6, 2018, 3:53 PM by NaCole Stevens

We are making this post in an effort to share accurate information about the changes that have been made to the pool hours. The Pool will be changing to new hours for the remainder of the school year. Due to not having a school swim team in the water at this time, the evening open swim will be changed to 3:30-5:30 p.m. Monday - Thursday (beginning Mon. 4/9). This adds 5 hours of public swim time per week. Summer hours will be determined at a later date. We plan to return to fall hours 2 weeks before the first high school swim practice in August. Thank you!
