    After three competitions this year, we made it to the 2022 First Robotics World Championships!

    We placed 54th place in the Newton division and averaged 94 points a match and 23.6 points for the hanger. Despite all the obstacles we encountered such as our shooter breaking before a match, battery issues, and more. We persevered and overcame these challenges and finished strong in our last couple qualifying matches.

    We all had a blast at the competition! Everyone came back energized and full of ideas for next season.

  • Headed to District Championship

    We're headed to the PNW District Championships in Cheney, WA April 6 - 9! This season's students (over half rookies who had never touched a robot) have come together and built an amazing organization and machine. Their success so far has us not only planning for the PNW Championship but suddenly we are preparing to attend the FIRST Robotics World Championship in Houston. Only 18 teams from the PNW will be invited to Worlds and we like our chances. We're looking forward to representing Glacier Peak and Snohomish High Schools with enthusiasm and gracious professionalism.

  • COVID PPE Production

    The Sonic Squirrels 2930 are pleased to share their solution to threading ties into pleated and/or shaped fabric masks. These 3D needles work with many sizes of elastic, cording, knit T shirt ties, bias tape, and woven fabric ties. The needles also make it easy to "thread" many masks at once if you are producing in bulk. We give them away in pairs. The needles are approximately 5 and 5.5 inches in length. Each needle takes about 10-12 minutes to print on an Ultimaker 2+ in PLA+ filament. Times and results will vary depending on settings. We tried printing multiple needles at once, but found trailing filaments to be a problem.
