Bobcats Robotics Varsity Team #10253
We have been participating in FTC since 2015. We were the first team formed at Back of the Yards College Preparatory High School. Our team consists of 20 hard-working team members that have taken a part in the success achieved throughout the years. A group of the teammates are considered Varsity that are dedicated more on the robot and the development of the robotics team. Half of our members are returning members who have been participating in the FTC competitions ever since their freshman year and have continued to partake in improving our team. Last year (2016-2017), we participated in city championships and our team won the Motivate award. This year (2017-2018) we won the Rockwell Collins Innovate Award at the City Championship level.
Introducing Bobcats Junior Varsity Team
Due to strong interest in the 2017-2018 season, in Spring of 2018 we launched two more teams, the “Junior Varsity” teams, to provide opportunities for younger students to learn by building, coding, and competing their own robot. The teams plans to participate in off season competitions this spring, and to compete in the Chicago League in the 2018-2019 season under the mentor-ship of Team #10253.
