The Washington DC chapter of ACM SIGGRAPH is proud to present the FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC) Team 122 – NASA Knights, a NASA Langley House Robotics Team affiliated with New Horizons Regional Education Center in Hampton, VA. The NASA Knights is a high-school robotics team that annually participates in various FRC competitions. Rachel Payne, Tristan Hancock, and Grace Walker, high school members on the team, will discuss their journey in creating an award-winning 3D animation, including the problems they faced along the way, and what they learned in producing and submitting this animation to competition. Their animation submission was awarded 3rd place world-wide in the 2024 FRC Digital Animation Award, an international 3D animation competition sponsored by FIRST® and AutomationDirect.com
