Storm Robotics

Storm Robotics is a FRC Robotics team (learn more) that aims to give students without FRC teams in their schools a chance at the highest level of competitive robotics.

  • Mechanical - Students learn how to design and implement complex designs and assemblies, including cascading elevators, telescoping climbers, and swerve drivetrains. Students learn the fundemental engineering concepts that drive thes creation of these mechanisms and other projects.
  • Programming - Students learn how to implement java-based, python-based, and even C-based systems to drive the robot and operate its components. Additionally, students learn how to design and create other programming projects, such as this website.
  • Electrical - Students learn how to design electrical systems, solder various connections, and implement various devices.

At Storm Robotics, we provide an educational environment that develops leadership skills, promotes innovation and creativity, and enhances both technical and nontechnical skills. We provide all the necessary tools and methods to improve skills such as design, assembly, and programming, as well as business, marketing, communication, and leadership. We promote S.T.E.A.M. growth in order to help students prepare for future careers with advantageous skills.

Coming back from our enriching experience at the FIRST World Championships, Storm Robotics has had the opportunity to reflect on our place in our community and our role in spreading STEM to the young students around us. As a result, we have unanimously concluded that we must seek to expand our operations to become a stable foundation and a catalyst for robotics education in Alpharetta and Milton.

Columbus District Event, Columbus State University, 2022

In our first competition in our young life, we learned the importance of a strong drivetrain, stable design, and good build quality.

  • District Event Finalists
  • Rookie Inspiration Award

We entered competition with a completely untested robot. Fortunately, our robot featured a 6 motor drive train with a high gearbox redcution that enabled us to play very effective defense. After some minor issues with our drivetrain's chain towards the end of the qualification rounds, we were the second pick of the second-seeded alliance, with IHOT robotics and the RoboLions. With help from our amazing aliance partners, we got our robot sturdy and working and went all the way to the finals! We left competition with a lot of experience and the Rookie Inspiration Award.

Carollton District Event, University of West Georgia, 2022

At Carrollton, we learned the value of mentorship, never giving up, and perseverance.

  • District Event Winner
  • Rookie All-Star Award

After completely restructuring our robot, swapping chain for belts, and adding a passive climber system, we were in a good position heading to our second district event. Qualification started our rough, where our climber was ripped from our robot. Although we did not have the climber for the rest of the competition, we were able to play solid defense and even scored a few balls. Towards the end of the qualification rounds, we had some issues with slippage, but the true nature of the issue would only reveal itself after alliance selections. We were drafted into the top seed alliance with Team 1771 and fellow rookies, The Mechanisms. During the lunch break, we discovered that our agressive defense resulted in the teeth from a belt in our drivetrain being completely stripped. With enourmous help from our absolutely amazing alliance partners, we were able to get ourselves fixed for the final rounds, where 1771's stellar offensive capabilities and the mechanisms awe-inspiring shooting consistency coupled with our defensive capabiltiies led to a win!

Peachtree District Championships (State Championships), Mercer University, 2022

The Peachtree District Championships taught us the importance of good build quality once again, and revealed to us the true meaning of FIRST robotics.

  • Rookie All Star Award (World Championship Bid)

After realizing the pitfalls our our current robot design, we decided to completely rebuild our robot. The first addition we made was a swerve drive train, which allows robots ot travel in any direction and at any yaw. Additionally, we ensured our robot was as sturdy as possible. However, the swerve modules came one day before the start of competiton. As a result, we had no choice but to complete our robot at competition. We were looking forward to finishing before the end of qualification, however, issues with the relative encoder built into the motor and the lack of available absolute encoders meant we could unfortunately not finish in time for match play. Even though we ultimately failed, we learned the true meaning of FIRST robotics is not to win or compete, but to learn, never give up, and making a platform for students like us to learn. Just as all hope seemed lost, we were chosen for the Rookie All-Star Award for our robust community outreach and importance, which gave us our bid to worlds.

World Championships, Houston, 2022

At worlds we had fun!

  • Rookie Inspiration Award

After securing over 15,000 dollars in corporate sponsorship, a further 18,000 in dues, and 5,000 in community donations, we were on our way to Houston. This was one of the first competitions where we were able to adequately test, and it showed. We competed with some of the best teams from all around the world, and played incredible defense throuhgout the event. After a informative 12 qualification matches, we received the Rookie Inspitration Award which recognizes a team for its strong mission that aligns with FIRST's mission, passion for robotics, and strong team partnership.
