"They are super ex- cited and maybe a bit scared," said schultheis. "We need to work on the hopper and make sure we can get the dics to drop correctly so they can shoot." according to schultheis, during the competitions the teams are de- pendent upon their alliance part- ners. If they break down or have is- sues, that affects both teams. schul- theis added "these kids made it to Worlds based on their skills. Which means they did it all by themselves. They did not have to depend on any- one but their teammates." having an excellent alliance is great during a match. Because it teaches the stu- dents communication, strategies and teamwork. When the teams run skills, it is just by themselves and they do not have the help of others. during competitions teams usually run eight rounds. Both teams working together receive the points they collectively earned. each round teams are paired with a PCMS Robotics team Circuit Jokers are, left to right, Keaton Stafford, Grayson Schultheis and Taylen Bailey.
