Team 100: Wildhats
FIRST Robotics Team 100 is located on the San Francisco Peninsula and consists of students from three high schools in the Sequoia Union High School District. Woodside High School joined the FIRST Robotics Competition in 1995, Carlmont High School joined the Wildhats in 2003, and Sequoia High School joined in 2008. Team 100 competes at the Silicon Valley Regional every year, as well as alternating appearances at the Sacramento Regional and San Diego Regional. The Wildhats show their enthusiasm for FIRST both on and off the playing field. We are currently working on this year's FRC game, Ultimate Ascent.
FIRST is an international organization aimed at inspiring students to develop skills in engineering and technology. FIRST is the foundation for the FRC, FTC, and FLL competitions, held annually. The program allows high school students to work side by side with professional adult mentors, in order to learn skills varying from animation to engineering, business and shop fabrication.
Team 100 would not be able to continue our participation in FRC if it weren't for the help of our wonderful sponsors. Our sponsors include PDI Dreamworks and their ptch team, the Woodside High School Foundation, SRI International, the Sequoia Union High School District, Intuitive Surgical, REIGN Real Estate, SolidWorks, Campbell Precision Sheetmetal, and a generous network of families and friends.
This year's FRC game is Ultimate Ascent! Ultimate Ascent is played by two competing alliances on a flat, 27 x 54 foot field. Each Alliance consists of three robots, and they compete to score as many discs into their goals as they can during a two minute and fifteen second match. Robots can also climb a three-level pyramid to score bonus points at the end of the match.
