After a long day in Columbia, SC for the South Carolina Robotic Invitational and Workshops, Metal In Motion came into Rank 3 behind 3490 Viper Drive (Rank 2) and 281 Green Villains (Rank 1). For Alliance selections we were happily chosen by Viper Drive onto the 2nd Alliance. For the 3rd and 4th picks of the 2nd alliance, 1398 Robo Raiders and 2815 Blue Devil Mechanics. We thank our alliance again for doing such a wonderful job, and Viper Drive for choosing us for your alliance. Congratulations to our opponents for putting up a great game. Everyone competed their best and it was a good game. Can’t wait for the build season!(Drive teams from 343, 3490, 2815, and 1398 listed in order from left to right)

We have just returned from the Rocket City Regional in Huntsville, Alabama!
We are so grateful for our amazing alliance partners 2783 and 1706! We were a great alliance and made it to quarterfinals where we tied twice (we were credited with one loss and one win) then lost the third match! The most important part is that we had fun and were able to cheer on everyone else!
We did also win one award and that is the gracious professionalism award! We would like to give a huge thanks to everyone who nominated us!
We are a little sad that we didn’t qualify for championship but it has been a great season!
Our alliance with team 4547 Westytek and team 2614 MARS recently made the regional finalists at our Palmetto Regional. We would like to thank Westytek for picking us for their alliance partners and MARS for joining the alliance. Overall before alliance selection, we came in 11th place. Thanks for all the support from home! We will continue to keep all of our sites updated throughout competitions.
We are all very excited for Wednesday, February 24th! That morning, we will be heading out for the FIRST Palmetto Regional!
All students are reminded to be at the HCC at 8:30 am sharp. We will be leaving no later than 9 am.
We have all of the defenses built and the tower is almost complete.
Side plates for track system are being machined.
We have an electronics board put together for a practice robot.
Chairman’s is coming along well, the essay is written and there are many ideas for the video.
There are many prototypes being developed for shooting mechanisms.
Team 343 wishes you a wonderfully merry Christmas! Don’t forget about Season Kickoff on January 9th (although I’m not sure that’s possible since the year doesn’t officially begin until the season starts!)! We will probably meet around 10 on that Saturday! Only 21 days to go, we are sooooooooooo excited!!!!!!!
