Over the weekend, Team 6544 Dover Shockwave competed in the regional FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) qualifier at North Andover High School. This season, DHS Shockwave is a rookie team competing in both FIRST Tech Challenge and FIRST Robotics Competition.
The team started out on FTC to get experience with designing, building and programming a robot before FRC build season started. Their FTC bot "CARL" has come a long way since they began working in October.
Here is a picture of CARL when he was first built. He's just a little thing with a funny arm!
And now here he is, all grown up and practicing for his first qualifier. Awww.
He was the smallest robot at the competition, but stable and very mobile.
Go CARL and great work DHS Shockwave!
