Welcome to AVHS Robotics Club... AVHS 'Botz

ALL SMILES at the 2001 AUV competition ceremony. Holding their four thousand dollar second place check we were feeling pretty good! From left to right, Jim Bales, Rear Admiral Jay M. Cohen, AVHS Members - Nick Rapp, Daniel Bryant, Karl Schulze, Chris Crutchfield, Nick Gurtler, and Chris LaFlash, a kind Judge, and Daryl Davidson on the far right.

We are the Amador Valley High School Robotics club, dubbed AVHS 'Botz. Our purpose is to explore the fields of engineering and technology through the Collegiate International Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Competition.

This Mission is very challenging, involving all aspects of today's latest technologies. The Mission involves building an Autonomous Submarine. That is a submarine that is capable of driving itself without any human interaction, in order to complete a mission.

Competitors include MIT, Naval Academy, Cornell.... and Amador Valley High School!

We competed in the 1999-2000 competition, placing 6th, the 2000-2001 competition, placing 2nd, and will be coming back in full force to the 2001-2002 Competition going for the gold with the help of our proud sponsors.
