Robosub 2023 was a testament to the power of community and determination. We encountered challenges that pushed us beyond our limits, but through unity and perseverance, we were able to meet our goals. From early mornings at school to late nights in our mentor's garage, every moment counted. And then, the ultimate reward - witnessing our efforts come to life at the competition!
But none of this would have been possible without the people who supported us. We would like to thank @TeamInspiration for their mentorship since day one, and Coach Goel who mentored us with our programming. We would also like to thank Virginia and Ralph Dinsdale and the O'Neill family for letting us practice in their pool, which was a vital part of the process. Next, we would like to thank the parents of our team members who have been driving back and forth and supporting the team. Furthermore, we would like to thank our advisor Mr. Jacoway. Moreover, we would like to thank our school Helix Charter High School for their generous support. Finally, we would like to thank our amazing sponsors @helixcharter and @atalaecr.
All this support from the community and hard work from our team allowed us to be proud of our performance at Robosub 2023! We even won a sponsored award from @Bluerobotics for imaging sonar, an altimeter, and an incredible depth sensor which will all help us monumentally for Robosub 2024.
This experience has taught us that when a community comes together, there's no limit to what can be accomplished. We were able to meet many new teams and organizations which impacted our understanding of community. To our incredible team, mentors, sponsors, and supporters –We couldn't have done it without you.
