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!

Competition week is closing in on us...

So, it's the Saturday before competition week. We will be meeting Wednesday night to finalize schedules and load up the cars with all of our stuff, and then driving in on Thursday morning to set up our pit station.

Today we made a working EVA model, and it looks like at this point, it will be the one we will most likely (if we) use in competition. It basically uses alot of magnets and an inside-out wheel to climb the pole. The only obstacle we have to get around now is the deployment of the EVA.

We will try to keep you posted as we continue to work hard to make this year's competition awesome!
