Irvine High School’s robotics team is a student-run initiative led by passionate and driven leaders. Comprised of 35 student members, two industry mentors, one teacher mentor, and a team parent, Team 7230 believes in the engineering process, and maintaining a collaborative environment. Our members gain valuable skills in hardware, programming, CAD modeling, strategy, and marketing. Since the team’s creation last year, we have participated in multiple different competitions, including off season events such as Beach Blitz.. Teams compete from all over the world against thousands of high schools in the First Robotics Competition. They are all given six weeks to program, build, and design a robot to complete the challenges of the current year’s competition.
Jatan Shah: Our hardware and CAD mentor. A mechanical engineer.
Archana Jain: Our club advisor. Started the engineering department at Irvine High School.
Michael Polucha: Our software mentor. A software engineer.
Dawn Anderson: Non-technical mentor
Mythic Mechanix is Irvine High’s robotics team that competes against other robotics teams in field games hosted by an organization called FIRST. Through competitions and collaboration, students learn core engineering skills such as brainstorming, manufacturing, building, programming, CAD modeling, and marketing. The team is composed of 6 subteams(hardware, software, CAD, game strategy, and fundraising) which work together to complete a robot each year for different themes.
