2013-2014 VanHorn High School’s CIA Robotics First Tech Challenge Team

Come check out Cyberbot at Barnes & Noble on Saturday November 9th from 10:30AM-12:00PM, or at one of our after-school or Saturday practices.

I thought I would share a picture of the 2013-14 Van Horn Cyberbotic Independence Alliance (CIA) FTC® robotics team.  This year’s theme is “Block Party!” in which we earn points by picking up 2″ yellow blocks and placing them in baskets.  In addition, we can earn points performing other tasks around a 12×12′ field.  One of the team’s favorite tasks so far this season is to have Cyberbot (yes, the robot has a name!) reach up, grab a bar, and then pull itself off of the ground.

Indpenendence staff and students check out Cyberbot flexing his pull-up muscles at

S: Van Horn High School > CIA_Robotics > Cyberbot_Pull_Up_Video.  Make sure to have the sound on you computer turned on — it is quite humorous!
