New to FIRST?

Hello, Robolions team members, mentors, friends, and community members! Welcome to "The Fourth Law of Robotics," home to University City High School's FIRST (For the Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Team. We hope to use this blog to inform you about what we're up to.
We compete in the FRC (First Robotics Competition), an annual competition where we have six weeks to build a robot from scratch. This year's game is Recycle Rush. We'll post updates here to let you all know what we're up to with building (and competing with) our robot!
We also are now competing in FTC (First Tech Challenge), the next level down from FRC. The game was called Ring It Up!

January 29, 2011: It moves!

Today's meeting was super-productive. The robot above, with all parts necessary for driving attached, is the end result. (Although we still plan to build the upper deck to store the electronics better and hold a mini-robot deployment mechanism.)

This burst in progress was fueled by brain power, pizza, and the electronics which were still on Pele. Our first FRC robot is now just a frame. Below, Walter disassembles it.
Overall, though, a very good day.
