The 2019 “Destination Deep Space” season competition was the Elonera Embers first FRC season.
We are a rookie team being mentored by Team 5985 Project Bucephalus.
We competed in the Southern Cross Regional tournament held in Sydney on March 10-12th 2019 and were part of the winning alliance, winning a place through to the Championships in Houston.
We will also be competing at Duel Down Under at Macquarie University 26-28th July 2019 and are busy a the moment getting a new robot ready for this tournament. Our original robot is still on it’s way back from Houston … taking the long way home.
If you would like to support us through mentoring, sponsorship, or in some other way we would love to hear from you.
