The Duluth East Daredevils are a team of students that take on the task of building a robot for the annual FIRST Robotics Competition. The team is comprised of seven different departments that build, photograph, write and manage the team.  Each member of the team is a part of a specific department, and they all work together to get to prepare the team for competition. Fabrication is in charge of designing, building, and programming the bot. Logistics is in charge of every other aspect, including strategy, branding, and the team budget.

Application deadline is September 21st! It’s time to get hooked on robotics!

Boys and Girls Club Lego Robotics Camp

This week, from Monday, August 6 – Thursday, August 9 the Daredevils will be hosting a Lego robotics camp with the Boys and Girls Club. The kids will be experimenting with robotic Lego kits to build robots to complete tasks. They will learn how to strategize different techniques for problem solving, learn how to make looping programs using the Lego EV3 Programming software, as well as building techniques to fabricate a robot with structural integrity. We are excited to see what the kids will build!

Gitchi Gummi Get-Together Rule Changes

Here are the rule changes for competition at the Gitchi Gummi Get-Together on July 20 -21.


G09: Launching of cubes will not be penalized as long as the intent is clearly to place CUBES on either SCALE PLATES or SWITCH PLATES, or in the ALLIANCE EXCHANGE ZONE.


If a team moves more than one CUBE at a time, as long as it is clear there was no strategic intent behind the action, they will not receive a penalty from G22. (This applies to unintentionally moving cubes during AUTONOMOUS.)

RO5: 5 pounds will be added to the ROBOT weight limit

To give more drive time we are adding 30 seconds to the teleop period during each round.

June Lego Camp Wrap-up

Today marks the end of our first summer Lego Robotics Camp. We had the campers work on completing three different boards, with different challenges on each board.  The main aspect of the challenges was line following, in which the robot differentiates between white and black to follow a line made of black electrical tape. The boards also had a ramp, and various other obstacles to get past. The campers began building on Monday, had all week to finish all of the boards, and then showed off their robots to their parents on Friday. We are excited for our next camp from July 9-13th, and hope to see what the kids accomplish there.
