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!

Fresh new look!

So upon entering the AutoCAD room this evening, we discovered a surprise waiting for us. Our teacher sponsorer, Mr. Gibson (who is the AutoCAD teacher as well as football coach) had gifted us with fresh new black-and-gold warmup jackets! They are complete with the logo and everything! The coaches got official-looking coach's polos, and all of us students got the jackets and pants. We look like the awesome team we are now. Thanks, Mr. Gibson! It's a gift better than we could have imagined!

Also, Chris brought in the banner that his mom graciously made and donated to the team. It looks awesome as well- thanks, Mrs. Matthews! Hey, if you are interested in her making banners for your team or business, visit her website,

We also got Boeing lables to stick on our robot to show our thanks for the company, who has donated time, money and mentors to help our team get started and acquire the resources needed to get the most out of this experience! So, thanks to Boeing as well!

Overall, it's been a good day (if you couldn't tell.) Right now the parents and mentors are having a meeting, and the students are working on the final stages of the minibot construction.

We can't wait for the competition to start! Only 48 more hours :) See you at the competition!
