Tech Hounds, CHS’s robotics engineering team, is preparing for its call-out meeting after a very successful 2012 to 2013 season. According to sponsor George Giltner, last year was Tech Hound’s best season ever. Senior Michael Jeffers said that he is excited for the addition of new competitive divisions.

Tech Hounds is a team that designs robots to complete certain objectives. Last year, Tech Hounds placed first in two regional competitions at Purdue and Rose Hulman, won the Indiana State Robotics Competition, and made it to the quarterfinals of the World Championship. “We did surprisingly well last year,” Jeffers said.

 

All the seasons are a little bit different. This year, there is a new Computer Aided Design (CAD) division, where they will make a robot on the computer. “I’m really excited to compete in CAD,” Jeffers said. “Every year, you learn a little more about what works and what doesn’t, and previous students become mentors,” Giltner said. The team is having its first call-out meeting on Sept. 5.

 

Giltner said, “I’m eager to find out what this year’s game is going to be.”
