On Team B, we put the interests and passions of our members first, with future engineers working on our robot and members who are passionate about programming working on our code. The Team B way is to work hard but smart, with an emphasis on teamwork. All of our members from Freshmen to Seniors work diligently over countless hours to get our robot to our team’s standard of perfection. With each generation of Team B our members learn more and more to create an even better robot each and every season.
To 569B, mastering programming is imperative to bettering our team’s performance. While a well built robot often gets much of the spotlight during a tournament, a consistent autonomous program is the competitive advantage we strive for. Leading Team B’s programming division this year is Justice Mann, a senior. As Head Programmer, Justice is tasked with creating much of the code the team will use in autonomous and driver control, as well as training a younger member to take over the programming department upon his graduation. Helping Justice is Olivia Shen, a junior who helps create functions and competition code, and Aneesh Aryal, a senior, who mainly edits and adjusts numbers in the code. Justice, Olivia, and Aneesh spend time testing each of Justice’s autonomous for errors, and adjusting numbers accordingly.
Building is something that comes naturally to 569B. Lead by Head Builder, Aneesh Aryal, a senior, Team B splits up the building process among its many builders. Justice Mann, a senior, works with Aneesh on designing a robot that fits the strategy Team B chooses to commit to. Aneesh and Justice then work on constructing the robot with the help of Aidan Mardone and Caleb Bunch, both juniors, Daniel Vali and Ryan Torelli, both sophomores, and Jarrett Blair and Matt Richards, both freshmen. Efficiency is what the Team B builders work to achieve. No matter the design or game, every good robot must be efficient. Team B takes building seriously as without a well built robot, even the greatest strategies or most innovative code will fall short.
This year, Team B has completely has completely changed the way it handles Media. Max Montes, a senior, is Head of Media this year. Max primarily works towards promoting Team B, both at tournaments and online. This year, Max has opened the Team B Instagram, in an effort to give Team B an online presence in the world of Vex Robotics. Additionally, he works on projects such as our poster board, and laser engraving things to help Team B stand out at tournaments. Max’s work in the media department largely culminate here on our website, where Max’s pictures and Instagram can take center stage in promoting both Team B, and 569 as a collective.
