FIRST Robotics Team Andromeda One Receive Engineering Inspiration Award

DriveWorks Sponsors FIRST Robotics

Since starting our sponsorship program, we have worked to help support FRC teams all over the world by providing them with a free 12-month license of DriveWorks Solo.

Using DriveWorks, teams can automate their SOLIDWORKS models to achieve more as a team, freeing them up to focus on quality robot design.

In addition to the software, teams also have access to resources to support their learning, including DriveWorks Solo Technical Webinars, Online Training, How-to Videos, Extensive Online Help Files and more.

District, Regional and World competitions have now started and we are excited to be involved sponsoring and supporting the teams.

FRC4905 Andromeda One from Ayer, Massachusetts are just one of the teams who have used DriveWorks Solo to configure and design the initial drive trainfor their competition robot.

On Friday, FRC Team 4905 participated in the Granite State New England District Competition in Salem, New Hampshire.

Heather from the DriveWorks team joined the weekend of high energy, excitement and enthusiasm!

Andromeda One had a great performance with their robot named This Is The Droid You Are Looking For.

They had the highest-scoring match of the weekend and they held onto a 1st place position going into the semifinals.

Unfortunately, on day 2 they were eliminated after a gruelling tiebreaker and didnt advance onto the finals.

Overall the team had a great competition. They learnt a bit about changes they need to make going forward and have lots of knowledge to take back and improve for the next competition.

Because of the design automation Andromeda One have added with DriveWorks Solo, making design changes and trying different options is much easier.

Engineering Inspiration Award

We were so proud to learn that while Andromeda One didnt advance to the finals, they received the Engineering Inspiration Award. This award celebrates outstanding success in advancing respect and appreciation for engineering within a teams school or organization and community.

Congratulations to FRC Team 4905, Andromeda One for all that you do as a team to support STEM in your local community and throughout the FRC Community!

This team mentors 15 teams across all 4 FIRST速 programs. A Summer STEM Week offers STEM education across the community. The team welcomes members of all abilities and learning styles. Their pipeline supporting FIRST happens every day.
