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!

The Robot is shipped!

The build season is over! After six weeks of work on the robot, the big robot, which is yet to be named, was shipped off last Tuesday. For these weeks until the St. Louis Regional Competition (March 17 - 19 at Chaifetz arena), work is now focused on our minibot Little EVA, which did not have to be shipped. Also on tap: a non-electronic signalling device to communicate which game piece we want, a robot name, and fliers about the competition to put around the high school.

Here's a video of the robot scoring in autonomous mode on our mini-field. I regret that I have no videos of the now-motorized EVA deployment tray, which is really awesome.
