Why Hello There!
Saint’s Robotics (FRC Team 1899) is thrilled to join the Open Alliance for the 2022 season!
We’re a school based team (Interlake High School) from Bellevue, Washington! We are part of the Pacific Northwest District. With our 90~ members, we are currently restructuring our decision making processes, and refreshing our student’s knowledge to make up for our newly-meetingless summer. More updates on our current status in future posts!
Here’s a bit more about us:
We were founded in 2005, and have always been with Interlake. For the most part, we worked at our school, but a few years ago we moved into our new workshop: Ivanhoe! We’re extremely thankful for the facilities we have, and our wonderful mentors which have helped us throughout.
Here’s a quick graphic (mildly outdated) detailing our subteams:
The names are quite self-explanatory, but the Competition group is a bit complicated. Right now, it’s not really a bunch of subteams, rather a group of individuals responsible for enforcing or guiding the rest of the team on these respective topics. We also have a new lead - the DEI captain!
As for leadership, we have 2 main divisions.
The administrators [admin] (President, VP, Secretary, Treasurer, Director of Engineering, Director of Communication, and Director of Competitions)
The leadership [leads] (Mechanical Lead, Control Systems Lead, Programming Lead, Business Lead, Imagery Lead, DEI Captain, Safety Captain, and Strategy Lead).
Directors are responsible for representing their leads:
Director of Engineering: Mechanical, Control Systems, Programming
Director of Communication: Business, Imagery
Director of Competition: Safety Captain, Strategy lead, Drive Team Manager
We are part of the Bellevue Alliance along with other FRC teams from high schools in the Bellevue School District. The purpose of this alliance is to network between teams and share resources to create a safe and fun community that allows every robotics team in Bellevue to grow and strengthen. We have monthly BA meetings where representatives from all the teams meet to discuss FRC things.
During the off-season we meet Mondays and Fridays from 3:45-5:45 (a good time for us after school) with drive practices on Wednesdays (this year) from 5-7pm. Unfortunately we believe we will not be able to meet in the summers because of our school’s policy. In build season we plan to meet almost every day with varying times each day.
