BunnyBots 2017 was held this Saturday, and it was the biggest BunnyBots ever held with 26 FIRST Robotics high school teams participating from around Oregon and Washington. As usual the cute stuffed bunnies lost to the custom built and programmed robots gathering them for points.
The Autodesk Lake Oswego high school interns led by Autodesk employee Pam Kilpatrick hosted a booth showing the latest Synthesis robot simulation software that is free to everyone.
Autodesk Lake Oswego High School Interns showing teams how to use Synthesis: Anna Nixon, Jackie Aaron, Isabelle Cordova, Kira Corbett, and Lauren Choquer.
Interns Anna Nixon and Jackie Aaron awarded two teams cash prizes for their winning entries demonstrating the use of Synthesis. The two teams videos will be featured at the FIRST FRC 2018 PNW kick off in less than a month.
The Autodesk Synthesis contest winning teams were:
Team 2521 SERT Robotics from Eugene OR
Team 3674 CloverBots from Battleground, WA
Congratulations to everyone that made this event a success. The students, mentors, teachers, volunteers, parents, sponsors, and of course the good sporting bunnies.
A very special Thank You to Team 1540 Flaming Chickens of Catlin Gabel for developing, running, and hosting this amazing robotics event.
See everyone for the FIRST FRC Kickoff and reveal January 5th, 2018!
