Who Are We?
Açı High School Robotics team was established in October 2019. The robotics club, which was started by our school in the previous school term, formed the basis of our team. Our interest in design, coding, problem identification, and solving prompted us to join the team from scratch. As our name suggests, “Tech4Peace” aims to reduce everyone’s fear of robots, especially young people, and the fear of robots taking the place of humans.
Even though it was our first year as a team, our excitement encouraged us to start big. That’s why we decided to join both the VRC and the FRC with the same team. Thanks to the support of our school, he helped us get the necessary kits to get us started. We participated in two of the VEX Robotics Competitions held in Turkey. Although it was very difficult to prepare for VRC and FRC at the same time with a rookie team, we managed to make it to the quarter-finals of the VRC National Championship. In addition, we won the Creativity Award in the FRC Istanbul Regional competition that we participated in.
In the 2021-2022 season, we will participate in VRC competitions with two teams “Terminus” and “Tech4Peace”. We will have the same high motivation and goals under the name of Açı HS Robotics.
What We Do?
The most important values of Açı Schools robotics team are to transfer the achievements such as problem finding and definition, problem-solving, creativity, taking responsibility, teamwork, and division of labor to other students and young people who cannot benefit from the same opportunities. Knowledge and experience in technology are the two most valuable things. However, as a result of our research on other high school robot teams, we realized that teams that are very knowledgeable and experienced in robotics do not share their knowledge sufficiently. As Açı Robotics team, we attach importance to benevolence and we think that what makes information valuable is that everyone can access that information. For this reason, we carry out numerous social responsibility projects and contribute to the society. Some of our social responsibility activities;
- Technology trainings we have given to Türkan Efe Primary School
- Face shields we produce to support healthcare workers.
- Technology trainings we give to İZEV Foundation
- Coding and 3D design trainings we provide to secondary school students from SAGEM institution
- The FLL team we formed with kindergarten students
