Hey, so the competition begins this weekend!
Technically it starts Friday, but we drive over to set up shop tomorrow. Here's the details:
Where: Chaifetz Arena
When: Qualifiers (the rounds we are guaranteed to be in) begin Friday, at 9am, and continue through the day. Then, on Saturday, there are more qualifiers beginning at 9am and ending at 11am. Saturday afternoon is the elimination rounds, which we may or may not be continuing to.
Directions: Chaifetz Arena is located on the SLU campus, at 1 S Compton Avenue, St. Louis, MO, 63103. For directions, visit MapQuest and get directions from your house.
Why: Uh, because this competition is completely intense. Imagine all that we've been showing you with pictures and videos of our robot, times 100. 28 teams. 2 days. It's even more exciting than a basketball tournement. Why watch March Madness when you could come watch the Robotics Competition? Plus, it's COMPLETELY FREE!!
If you have any more questions, shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or comment on this status. For even more info, visit: http://www.stlouisfirst.org/
See you at the competition!! :)
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!
