– 569A

Our Team

We are Team 569A! Excited for the new season Change Up, we are determined to build a fully functioning robot that will win awards and tournaments as we compete throughout the year.  In our team, we are all very connected and are overjoyed to build new friendships with the new team members this year. We are all involved in many aspects of our robot. Our team has set many goals for this year, and we plan to push ourselves to achieve the very best.


Our building team works diligently to assure that there are no mishaps or issues with the design. Our builders have collaborated to find the perfect mixture of speed, stability, and strength. Our design will help us to go great distances during this competition season.


Our team prides itself on autonomous and coding. We have excelled in the coding area many times from last year, competing with some of the best teams from around the world. We have spent all year refining our autonomous routines and enhancing the way we use our encoders. 

Previous Years

Our team did fantastic in the Vex Robotics Competition challenges, Turning Point and Tower Takeover. 569A went to states, and worlds. We were in the Technology division for Worlds in Turning Point and we won 1 award.

Our Robot

   Our robot’s name is Escargot. Our robot has an x-drive and flywheel.

Team Biographies


Hello, I’m Nicholas and I am a Junior. This is my third year in robotics. I love to program the robot and I hope to do robotics as a career in the future. I enjoy playing soccer as well.




Hi! My name is Kacy. I am currently a Junior at MV and in my third year in the robotics club. I am a builder on the team that also likes to help with coding. I also play Varsity sports but still love to come to robotics club to build a robot. With all this experience from the club I am planning to go into an engineering field in the future. 


Hello, I’m Janessa and I’m a builder for Team 569A which is pretty cool. I really enjoy learning new things so right now my hobbies are learning guitar and skating which I think is interesting. I also have a deep deep deep passion for the Cats movie and that really contributes to my overall outlook on life.


Representing Team 569A as the Tiny Giant, Richie is the driver of our team. Despite his lack of experience with this only being his second year in robotics, he’s very competent in most areas, proving that he’s invaluable. He hopes that this year allows us a season to play in. 




I’m Josephine; a Junior at Murrieta Valley High, and I joined robotics for its competitiveness and team building environment. I enjoy STEAM related projects and getting hands-on.
