WELCOME

The Titan Robotics Club is a middle and high school robotics program at the International School in Bellevue, Washington. We aim to spread awareness and raise interest within our school and our community about robotics and the programs of FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology). As part of the annual FIRST Robotics Compeition, FIRST Tech Challenge and FIRST Lego League, our team of over 60 students work with field professionals and adult mentors to earn valuable life experience with robotics, technology and science. You can learn more about our programs as well as FIRST by selecting each from the above navigation bar.

FIRST Robotics Competition Kickoff - Saturday, January 3, 2015

It's that time of year again!
FRC Kickoff is where the game challenge is announced and marks the beginning of
the  6 week design and build season.  Teams around the world each meet up  and
attend  a  "local" Kickoff for a simulcast event.  This is a required event for the
team; it’s a great chance to get ideas, learn the game, pick up the Kit of Parts,
meet local teams and get geared up for the exciting competition season!  Our
team will be attending the local Montlake Terrace High School Kickoff which
begins early in the morning at 7 am.  You can get a jump on the season by
preloading the encrypted rules from the FIRST site onto your mobile device,
unlocking it where the password will be revealed at kickoff. We will leave from
school at 6:00 am and then plan on a team strategy session following the official
kick-off event. There will be a parent meeting at 3:30 pm. Location of the Parent
meeting and strategy session are yet to be determined. Check back often for
more details.
Here's the Facebook event!

Girls Generation

On October 18, there was an extra FRC competition called Girls Generation where only girls could drive and fix the robot between matches. Our drive team consisted of Yvonna Skrinnik, Roya Amini-Naieni, Anusha Sriram, and Rebecca Cheng. With just four hours of practice these girls and the mentors and other members of the team who were able to compete participated in matches and made awesome connections with other teams in our area. Thanks to our mentors: Amy McIvor and Gail Nelson for all the logistics, Mike Tsang for some over the phone support, Eric Nelson for help loading the night before, and Larry Cheng, and Sue Zhu for driving and helping with technical issues. Special thanks goes to Christian Birch for his help with helping to fix the robot. The whole day was a great experience for all involved.
