As of the morning of January 3rd our 2015 build season has began. This year’s game is Recycle Rush.
“Recycle Rush is a recycling-themed game played by two Alliances of three robots each. Robots score points by stacking totes on scoring platforms, capping those stacks with recycling containers, and properly disposing of pool noodles, representing litter. In keeping with the recycling theme of the game, all game pieces used are reusable or recyclable by teams in their home locations or by FIRST at the end of the season” –the description given by the FRC website
The Millerbots will first be competing in the Minneapolis North Star Regionals competition, held between April 1st and 4th of 2015. (More information about Minnesota FIRST Robotics teams) We have lots of strategies to discuss, designs to sketch, robots to build and codes to upload! Good luck to all the FRC teams and check back at the Washburn Millerbots website to follow our progress.
