Coming off the momentum of its offseason and the success from its first competition, San Marino High School’s Robotics team has not stopped preparing for the season to come.
In the robotics room, team members have continued their work on a new T-shirt cannon for the past two weeks. Through a process of using more than 100,000 rivets, the engineering members of the team successfully finished the drivetrain, which is a series of components that delivers power to the wheels, giving the automotive element its driving and moving capabilities.
In addition to the drivetrain, the magazine — the chamber that will hold the T-shirts before being launched — has also been completed. Over the course of the following work sessions, engineering members will be busy researching and obtaining the necessary materials for the gearbox and motor components of the cannon.
Additionally, members of the business team have been working on rebranding the team, and coordinating with local institutions to organize outreach events. Overall, the team is focused on preparations for its official season, and is excited to start the next semester in January.


Titanium Robotics is a team consisting of more than 100 students, mainly from San Marino High School, who come together with a common interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Students learn from professional engineers and mentors to build and compete in the annual FIRST Robotics Challenge with a robot of their own design. Programming, electrical work, computer-aided design and business management are all run by student representatives, making the entire organization student-led from start to finish.
