Seattle Lutheran High School Robotics is one of the oldest continually active teams in Washington state. Each season Team SeaBot builds and programs their robot for FIRST’s yearly competitions. FIRST stands for “For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology” and SeaBot has been competing in their competitions since 2004. Beginning in January Team SeaBot are led by Mr. Norton, Mr. Loeliger and a cadre of dedicated volunteers who help the students with marketing, programming, building, and other sub-teams. The human players and the robot, which they control, compete against other schools across the Pacific Northwest as well as teams from all over the U.S. and other countries. Team SeaBot enjoys success at competitions, earning final-round seats at each competition. In 2016 SeaBot competed in the World Championship in St. Louis. The competition for that year was “FIRST Stronghold” where the alliances had to breach the opponents’ defenses and capture their tower. This year, we will be involved in the competition called “Destination: Deep Space” where the robot and its human counterparts race to load and secure cargo, with hatch panels, on their rockets and cargo ship. They have to do all of this and return to the safety of their habitat before another sandstorm comes and time runs out.
