Team 696 – Circuit Breakers– Home
Welcome to Team696.org! This is the site for Clark Magnet High School's robotics team. We participate in the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition.
Our team is located in La Crescenta, California and has been competing since 2001. While visiting our site, you can learn about our team's history as well as current activities.
The FIRST Robotics Competition is an international competition in which high school students build a robot to compete in a unique game. Students are responsible for designing, constructing, and programming their robot. The program builds important technical and life skills.

Designing is Done!
team is relieved that the design is finally completed and manufacturing
has begun. We will hopefully not have any flaws in our design. All the
parts for the robot will be sent in for powder coating on Monday,
February 11, and the entire thing should be done by Tuesday, February
19, the last day of build season. We are planning on making the most out
of our time by taking advantage of both of our three- day weekends.

Regional Competition Success
Everybody’s hard work paid off! Congratulations to our team for being successful in both regional competitions. At the Inland Empire regional competition, we were chosen to join an alliance, which unfortunately was beaten in the finals. We won the Industrial Design Award. At the Los Angeles regional competition we lost in the semifinals, but won the Innovation in Control Award. Hopefully, next year we will have a season as good as this one.

Everybody’s hard work finally paid off! Congratulations to our team for being successful in both regional competitions. We were finalists at the Inland Empire regional competition, but we won the Industrial Design Award. The Industrial Design Award is presented to the team whose robot is able to form and function in an efficient manner and achieve the game’s challenge. The judges who awarded us the Industrial Design Award especially liked our green gearbox that was one of our display parts in our pit. At the Los Angeles regional competition we lost in the semifinals, but won the Innovation in Control Award. The Innovation in Control Award is awarded to the team that has an innovative control system or a strong control system that works well with all of the robot’s parts. Competition is over, but the team is looking forward to next year’s season. Hopefully, it will be as good as this one!
