Cyber Blue is on a roll, taking home a banner from every competition in Indiana! At the Indianapolis District, we took home the Chairman’s banner. At the Kokomo event, we soared through the finals and won the competition alongside 135 and 3865. At the Purdue event, we worked our way from the bottom to win again alongside 1024 and 2197. Finally, and most recently, we took the State Championship by storm, and after some nail biting matches, became the first ever IndianaFIRST District Champions alongside 1024 and 292! Cyber Blue is now ranked #1 in the state and was the #1 seed at 3/4 of the competitions!! We will be attending the world championship in St. Louis April 22nd-25th! Check out our Facebook (Cyber Blue 234), Twitter or Instagram (@cyberblue234) for more updates, and as always, thanks for all the support!
This weekend we attended the first Indiana District competition at Lawrence North High School! We were 2nd seed going into eliminations, we were 2nd seed alliance captain, and 5th overall. We partnered with 3947, and 3147 in the elimination rounds. We advanced to the quarter finals, but unfortunately landed in 5th place going into semi-finals. We watched as the competition intensified throughout the finals. We waited in anticipation while teams got called for awards. When it came to announcing the chairman’s award and we still had not received an award, we were both excited and nervous. When they announced that we won the chairman’s award, we were in shock. We had just won the first ever Indiana District chairman’s award! Next, we will go to Kokomo, and then to Purdue. After those competitions, we will go to the state competition to compete against the other 2 chairman’s teams. If we win there, we will go on to represent IndianaFIRST for chairman’s at the national competition in St.Louis. Go Cyber Blue!
The secret is about to be revealed……
Join us on Thursday February 19th from 6pm to 8pm in the Cyber Blue lab to watch us demo this year’s robot. See just how many totes we can stack!!!
Tuesday, February 10th we hosted the annual Critical Design Review where senior professional engineers critique our design, ask questions, and learn about the new game. This year, the event took place in the Perry Meridian High School Robotics lab! 6 engineers attended, along with several parents. We are incredibly grateful for the questions and feedback. We hope you enjoyed CDR this year!
Our screening of Slingshot was a huge success. We had Scouts come in before the screening and showed them how to build and program robots using the Lego Mindstorm kits. The kids had an awesome time with the robots and did not want to take apart their creations at the end of the night.
Just before screen time we had some demonstrations for the crowd. We found some GREAT future Cyber Blue candidates!
Thank You for supporting Cyber Blue.
In an effort to raise awareness about FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Cyber Blue will host a screening of the documentary SlingShot on December 14th.
We are inviting all Cyber Blue Fans, Students, our Sponsors, Proud Grandmas and any one else that would like to join us to attend. Cyber Blue is hoping to make this an evening of fellowship by inviting local FRC teams to join in watching the movie about the man that Founded FIRST, Dean Kamen. The documentary will highlight Dean’s 15 year in the making invention, the Slingshot, as well his fascinating life.
Please make plans to join us on December 14th at 5pm at the Perry Meridian High School Auditorium. We will start the evening out with robot displays and robot demonstrations. The screening will start at 6pm.

Saturday, November 1st Cyber Blue “Pink Edition” attended an all girls FIRST Robotics competition in Bloomfield Hills, MI. There were 32 teams from Canada, Indiana, and Michigan in attendance. The 8 member team shared responsibility both in the pit and on the field. We are very proud of our girls for taking it “One Step Higher” as we became a prominent alliance captain in the elimination rounds. We made it to the semi- finals as the 4th alliance captain with a record of 6-2.
We had our first meeting with our new students Tuesday, September 2! It was a very successful meeting! All the new members tried out what they thought they wanted to do on the team! We discussed plans for the off-season and Indiana going to districts (we are ecstatic to host an event at PMHS!)! We are very excited to welcome Cyber Blue’s newest members, including 3 new mentors!!
