The Titanium Titans Robotics team recently won the Rookie Inspiration Award for team organization, recruitment, sponsorship and team spirit at the 2013 FIRST Pittsburgh Regional Competition held March 15-16 in the Peterson Events Center in Oakland.


The team’s robot, named Atlas, was designed to shoot frisbees a distance of 52-feet, with an adjustable deck for targeting and aiming. In addition, the robot was able to lift its weight and “climb” up one level on a 12-foot metal pyramid.


The Titanium Titans was started in October 2012 by a partnership between the Creative Learning Collaborative (CLC) and the Peters Township Public Library and is open to students in grades 9-12 in the South Hills who are interested in hands-on robotic design and engineering. Team sponsors are Comcast, the National Network of Digital Schools, PA Cyber, Tyco Electronics, Ironworkers Union #3 and the Peters Township Public Library.


The CLC is a parent-led community group sponsored by the Peters Township Public Library as a community-wide educational outreach. The group’s mission is to create access to and excitement about STEM-based learning programs among students in the Canonsburg, Peters Township, Bethel Park, South Fayette and Upper St. Clair areas. Visit www.creativelearning-PT.org for more information about FIRST robotics and other exciting programs supported by the CLC.
