The Friarbots have been eager to get started on the VEX In the Zone game. They put together a great kickoff plan and made great headway today. Each student had a chance to present their findings to the group and they discovered some interesting opportunities. Kickoff will continue Saturday morning at 10am with requirements development. What a great start to the VEX season, well done Friarbots! ... See MoreSee Less

The Friarbots spent the weekend at the La Habra Citrus Fair demonstrating with Phoenix Team 6554 and XBots 5810. We had a great time demonstrating to kids and parents and the kids sure did love throwing the balls into the robots and the boiler. Demos should be fun this year. We had good turnout from our team with active demos all day and even hands on activities with Pneumatics and Frame Structure building with static robot displays for VEX and FRC. Thanks for all the hard work from those that supported the event. We made a great impression on the event coordinators and they have already requested that we come back next year. Great Job! ...

We had an amazing four days at the FIRST Championship in Houston last week. Our continued quest to improve Vulcan and the hard work of every student, mentor, and parent paid off in our best champs performance ever, ranking #2 in the Hopper division. We teamed up with #1 seed Up-A-Creek Robotics - FRC Team 1619 along with 1319 and 4944 for eliminations.
Our trip to Houston culminated a season of accomplishments: earning our second Chairman's Award, ranking #2 and finishing as finalists at the LA Regional, ranking #1 and winning the Orange County Regional, winning Excellence in Engineering and Innovation in Control awards, and VP Jon Logrippo recognized as a Dean's List Finalist for the second time.
Thank you to our sponsors, mentors, parents, alumni and the Servite, Rosary, and Connelly community for supporting us and making 2017 the best season yet for the Friarbots. ... See MoreSee Less
