Did you know that high school students from the Hockinson, Camas, and Washougal School Districts combine to make up Team Mean Machine, a competition robotics team? Team Mean Machine just introduced this season's robot - VULCAN! - in its robot reveal video.
HHS students Charlie Varney and Daniel Hall have collaborated with their TMM teammates to prepare for their team's first event of 2022 at the PNW District Wilsonville Event on Friday, March 11 and Saturday, March 12.

and FIRST Robotics Competition here:
The FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) is described as a “varsity sport of the mind." FRC students have six weeks to design, prototype and build fully functioning competition robots that can effectively perform in a challenge-based game. The robot must weigh no more than 120 pounds, have no larger than a 12V power supply, and adhere to several other design criteria to be considered legal for game-play. In addition to building a robot, teams must market and communicate themselves effectively to one another in order to develop alliances that will increase the team's chances of success.
