The Team has been busy in the shop cleaning and organizing and making a shipping crate for the Rookie All Star for 2015. The crate was created to be passed on from year to year to the new Rookie All Star.
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!!
We co-hosted the IRI this weekend. What a great weekend of competition with great teams! Congrats to the winning #2 seed alliance of OP Robotics 2056, Las Guerrillas 469, Winnovation 1625, and Makeshift Robotics 4039! Another congratulations extended to the #1 seed finalist alliance of The Cheesy Poofs 254, Simbotics 1114, The Beach Bots 330 and Cybergnomes Robotics 2013! Thank you to all who participated.
It’s that time again! Time for the Indiana Robotics Invitational! Hosted by Cyber Blue 234, Kill-A-Bytes 1024, and TechnoKats 45, the IRI is an off season event where teams from all over North America come to compete. The field is set, and we are ready, so come out and watch some awesome teams in action! Visit http://www.indianaroboticsinvitational.org for more information.
This past weekend Cyber Blue took part in the Central Ohio Robotics Invitational, in Dublin, OH. We were 5-0 and ranked #2, and were drafted by the #1 seed, team 3138. Team 447 joined our alliance and we were 6-1 in the eliminations to win the event. We also built a second robot with the hopes of helping a new rookie team, but we ended up competing with a second drive team as team 1234. “Spike” preformed well and our second drive team was drafted by the #3 alliance and made it to the semi-finals! Both robots are in the photo, a match where we competed against each other. We also visited the Air Force Museum in Dayton and were able to see the history of flight from the early 1900’s airplanes to the latest jets, rockets and spacecraft!
