Oregon FIRST® Tech Challenge Championship presented by March 8, 201 5 Benson Polytechnic High School, Portland Welcome! Our event today is the ninth Oregon FIRST® Tech Challenge ® Championship. This year 1 86 Oregon FTC teams designed, innovated, documented and performed to meet the Cascade Effect Challenge. Our FTC community expanded to form five FIRST Tech Challenge Leagues who were hosted by veteran FTC Teams as part of our student leadership program. Oregon piloted four Super-Qualifier tournaments, the very first in the nation as part of a new advancement level in FIRST Tech Challenge. Oregon FTC Championship marks our 30th FTC event this season. Our divisions at today’s event are named for Oregon’s iconic industries Timber and Tech. Oregon rich in natural resources boosts a strong agricultural heritage alongside the Silicon Forest which is rich in technological stalwarts. Our FTC team members should recognize and learn from these industries and be inspired to join them as part of Oregon’s workforce.

Awards Judged Awards The Inspire Award is given to the Team that the Judges felt truly embodied the ‘challenge’ of the FTC program. This Team serves as an inspiration to what this program, and the young minds involved, can accomplish. The Team that receives this Award has performed well in all Judging categories and was chosen by the Judges as a mode FIRST Tech Challenge Team. The Judges use observations made during interviews and in the pit area, the Team’s Engineering Notebook, and performance on the playing field in determining the winner. The Think Award is given to the Team that the Judges feel best understands the role of the engineering notebook in the design process. This Team’s Engineering Notebook focuses on the design and build stages of the Team’s robot and exemplifies their journey as a team and engineers. The Connect Award is presented to the Team that the Judges feel most connectes with their local community and the engineering community. The Team is recognized for helping the community understand FIRST, the FIRST Tech Challenge, and the Team itself. This Team is aggressively seeking engineers and exploring the opportunities available in the world of engineering, science and technology. The Rockwell Collins Innovate Award celebrates a Team that not only thinks outside the box, but also has the ingenuity and inventiveness to make their designs come to life. This Award is given to the Team that the Judges feel has the most Innovative and Creative Robot design solution to the FIRST Tech Challenge to any or all specific field elements or components. Elements of this Award include elegant design, robustness and ‘out of the box’ thinking with regard to design. This Award may address the design of the whole robot or some sub-assembly component attached to the robot. The creative component needs to work consistently, but a robot does not have to work all of the time during Matches to be considered for this Award. The Team’s Engineering Notebook shows the design of the component(s) and the Team’s robot, and succinctly describes how the Team arrived at that solution. The intent of the PTC Design Award is to expand the challenge, inspiring Teams to incorporate industrial design into their robots. These elements can be shown in the simplicity of the design as it applies to the tasks, the look and feel of the robot, and how the design allows us to think of robots in new ways. The Design aspect must serve a function – but they should also differentiate the robot in a unique fashion – not an easy task with a limited set of parts and game challenge. The Motivate Award celebrates the Team that exemplifies the essence of the FIRST Tech Challenge competition through Team building, Team spirit and exhibited enthusiasm. This Team celebrates their Team, their individuality and their spirit through Team attire, and exhibits their outstanding Team spirit. This Teams enthusiasm and spirit motivates others to embrace the culture of the competition and FIRST. The Team has also made a collective effort to make FIRST known throughout their school and community. The Control Award is given to the Team that demonstrates innovative thinking in the control system to solve Game challenges such as Autonomous Operation, enhancing mechanical systems with intelligent control, or using sensors to achieve better results on the Field. Teams must submit a completed Control Award Content Sheet with their Engineering Notebook in order to be considered for this award. The Promote Award is given to the Team that is most successful in creating a compelling message for the public designed to change our culture and celebrate science, technology, engineering and math. The FTC Public Service Announcement Video is evaluated by the Judges to determine the winner of this Award. Teams must present a thoughtful and high-quality video which appeals to the general public. The 201 4-201 5 CASCADE EFFECT topic is: "Why I choose FIRST..." The Compass Award recognizes an adult Coach or Mentor who provided outstanding guidance and support for an FTC Team throughout the year. The winner of the Compass Award is determined from candidates nominated by FTC Team members, via a 40-60 second video submission, highlighting how their Mentor has helped them become an outstanding Team. l Performance Awards Championship Winning Alliance Championship Finalist Alliance Timber Division: Winning Alliance Finalist Alliance Tech Division: Winning Alliance Finalist Alliance Thirteen teams from today's Championship will advance to the FIRST Tech Challenge West Super-Regional Championship Tournament presented by Google in Oakland, California, March 2729, 201 5.
