Cage Match

Published on October 23, 2014, by

This past Saturday, October 18th, Red Alert Robotics celebrated a victory at Cage Match, an off-season competition that lets teams meet and compete in a friendly atmosphere. The team placed fourth seed overall in the qualifying rounds. Nearing the end of the competition Red Alert chose their alliance partners, teams 1024, 1646, and 5402, ultimately leading to victory. Although it was a rocky start with one crucial loss we managed to beat the odds and come back to win the competition.  This victory, coupled with winning State, has put the team in high spirits, which hopefully leads to a good future. 

Cage Match also allows for new team members to experience the competition environment. This event is a great opportunity for members to practice driving the robot. Team member Ashley Varney said “I loved getting to drive, it was so fun!” Every year at this event Red Alert hosts a silly science fair which is a space where students and children alike can learn about robotics, build with legos, get their faces painted and have educational and safe fun. Overall it was a great day with many wonderful experiences for old and new members alike. Red Alert couldn’t have won without the help of their amazing alliance partners, teams 1024, 1646, and 5402, and would like to extend our thanks for all their great work.

Greene’s Community Fair

Published on October 9, 2014, by
        On October 4th Red Alert Robotics held the Community Fair in partnership with Comics are Cool, Greene’s Auto, and the Ottney Family. The Fair brought in a great crowd this year; many families enjoyed the games, food, and learning opportunities provided by this event. Music provided by Hot Rod Worship allowed for a family-fun environment that entertained patrons during the fair. Throughout the day members of the community stopped by and played games ranging from shooting Nerf targets to Plinko. Zoey’s pizzeria, Chick-fil-a, and Circle City Spuds and Grub provided amazing food. The numerous volunteers not only helped with setup and teardown, but also contributed by bringing hot apple cider, coffee, hot chocolate, and baked goods. The Robotics Team brought two of their robots, Whizbee  and Jaws, for members of the community to drive. At the end of the day, everyone left with a smile on their face a new knowledge about the Robotics Family.

10th Anniversary

Published on September 4, 2014, by


First Team 1741 Red Alert Robotics is about to celebrate it’s 10 year anniversary! This is a giant stepping stone for our team. For this anniversary we would like to honor the original members of the 1741 team. Over the coming weeks we will be having interviews with the original team members.

Several of the students have returned as mentors to help pass on knowledge from previous years and this keeps classic team memories alive. By reconnecting these mentors and alumni we hope to commemorate 10 years of hard work and dedication to FIRST and STEAM- Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math.
