Olympia Robotics Federation Makes Their Way to the Finals
The Olympia School District’s FRC team, the Olympia Robotics Federation (ORF), 4450, got off to its best start in team history by going all the way to the finals in its first District Competition at Mount Vernon, WA, going up against 39 other teams from the Pacific Northwest. ORF won with excellent driving skills and game strategy scoring through control of the switch and passing power cubes to the vault for special powers. Their robot, “Odyssey” worked well without using its climbing mechanism (which will be ready for next competition), by being very efficient on the ground.
ORF also won the Entrepreneurship Award which celebrates relationships with sponsors and STEM organizations in the community.
