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!

Sorry for not writing in a while, we've just been so busy with end of school year stuff- a few of us took AP exams this week, and everyone else is getting ready for finals.

The Robolions haven't been up to much since the competition. We're planning on having a meeting next week to discuss plans for the summer, plans for next year, etc. Here are a few items that may be on the agenda for discussion:

-Do we want to meet over the summer? When? Where?
-Recruiting for next year- possibly build a Robotics float for the homecoming parade?
-Fundraising for next year- team fundraising as well as trying to get sponsorship from local companies
-Speculating on what next year's challenge might be! Several teams have already posted predictions on, a portal/forum for FIRST teams.

Other than that, you probably won't hear from us for a while! But we will try to post updates from time to time to let you know what we're up to. Thanks for reading!
