The SOTA Cyberdragons
The SOTA Cyberdragons is a robotics team based in San Francisco, California. We participate in FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), which is an international robotics organizations that includes thousands of teams and hundreds of thousands of students. Our robotics program fosters ingenuity and champions the growth of well-rounded life skills such as communication, proactivity, and leadership. We are a nonprofit organization that runs a high-budget, and rely on sponsor donations, both in-kind and cash, to support the work we do.
Started in 2014, SOTA Cyberdragons has been encouraging STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) through challenges tackled with modern technology. Throughout the years incoming members will develop a myriad of skills involving, cooperation and coordination. SOTA Cyberdragons is a team of artists from many backgrounds, banded together in order to form a unique innovation.
Our very first competition was the spring break of 2015 at FRC's Silicon Valley Regional. Although we may have not achieved a notable rank, the experience we have gained from the competition will lead to our development as an outstanding team. This hypothesis proved to be true when in early October we competed in WRRF's CalGames 2015. Here we our results were far better than we expected. We went home with two awards: the Highest Seeding Rookie Award and the Rookie Inspiration Award.
