bIrobot Stop Build Day
Feb 20 all-day

Today at 11:59:59 (04:59:59 GMT) is the end of the 2018 build season for FRC teams all around the world including the BICS bIrobot team.  bIrobot is among more than 3,000 teams in 30+ countries completing robots that are custom designed and built to compete in this year’s FRC game named Power Up!  The six week qualification round period begins next week with the bIrobot Team heading to matches at Grand Valley State University on March 22-24 and Marysville High School on April 5-7.  You can see the completed 2018 bIrobot at the annual Chili Cook-off at BICS the evening of March 2.

About the 2018 bIrobot

This year’s robot is unlike any the team has built before.  It has a six wheel drive system with four closely spaced pneumatic tires (two on each side and all powered) and two “omni” wheels (that can drive forward and roll sideways) far forward on the chassis (one on each side).  On board the robot are four major sub-systems.  First, the telescoping, two stage lift system can extend from 50 to 100 inches in height and move its main stage from floor level to the top position of the lift.  The lift system caries  the second system, a cube handling system that can pick-up a milk crate sized, nylon covered cube from the floor in any orientation, and eject it at any level the lift can reach. The lift systems also caries the third system, a climbing assist mechanism that can extend a cantilever arm to a bracket and then work with the lift system to climb the entire robot at least 12 inches off the floor.  The final mojor system is an electronics bay that includes the computer, power supply, motor controllers and safety systems that control the robot.

Titan Challenge @ Davenport University
Feb 27 – Feb 28 all-day

Business Education, Services & Technology students will travel to Davenport University in Grand Rapids on Tues, Feb 27th for the annual Titan Challenge. This is a Junior Achievement program competition. It requires that a business volunteer comes into the classroom to teach a series of business lessons prescribed by Junior Achievement. Beaver Island resident, Andy Stebbins, once again graciously volunteered. The students and their teacher, Connie Boyle, appreciate all his hard work.

JA Titan challenges students to apply their knowledge of business as they compete online in the highly competitive industry of the fictional Holo-Generator. Students enter decisions about Price, Production, Marketing, Capital Investment and Research & Development. The impact of their decisions will lead to the success or failure of their Holo-Generator company.

The competition on Wed, Feb 28th, starts them with a score of 100 on the“Performance Index” for their fictitious business. The Beaver Island high school team has worked hard and during class practices has raised its score to well over 500.  They are aiming for the 700s or above in the competition.

Representing Beaver Island Community School (BICS) this year are the students in Mrs. Boyle’s Advanced Business Management class:  seniors Forrest Avery, Katie Lafreniere and juniors Brennan Jones, Turner Jones, and Riley Williamson.

The BICS Advanced Business Management class is part of a much larger program supported by taxpayers in the Charlevoix-Emmet Intermediate School District. Since 1996, the Char-Em ISD’s Career and Technical Education (CTE) Program has provided practical educational experiences for tens of thousands of students. Today, over 1,500 students participate in 42 different programs spread across all 11 Char-Em ISD school districts each year.
