Kick Off and Week of January 10th, 2015

The 2015 FRC Season has now officially begun! This year’s game was recently released and the heat is on. FRC involves a 6-week building period where the entire team will be working on one robot in order to compete in competition.

On Saturday, January 3rd, the Robo Lions officially “kicked off” the 2015 FRC Season with a drive down to Georgia Tech to view the reveal of this season’s game: Recycle Rush!

Recycle Rush is a recycling-themed game played by two Alliances of three robots each. Alliances compete simultaneously to score points by stacking Totes on Scoring Platforms, capping those stacks with Recycling Containers, and properly disposing of Litter, represented by pool noodles, in designated locations. In keeping with the recycling theme of the game, all scoring elements used are reusable or recyclable by teams in their home locations or by FIRST at the end of the season.

Since that Saturday, the Robo Lions have been hard at work during almost every day of the week brainstorming and prototyping their ideas for a robot, preparing for competitions beginning in late February!
