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!

New Members, Rookie Challenge and Other Stuff

Today we got even more new members after the Club Fair. Here they are:

Vel'Toria Johnson, 11th Grade
"I joined robotics because I want to be an engineer"

Charity Smith, 11th Grade
"I joined robotics because I like working with mechanical items"

Kang Chang, 12th Grade
"I joined robotics because I am interested in electricity, building, and programming."

We are so excited to get more new members!
Also, starting next Wednesday, we will be issuing a challenge to all our new members. I can't say anything about it now, but it will be a challenge that has them design and build a robot to perform a given task. We are excited to have the newbies working on something productive.

In other news, we recently recieved a grant from the UCEF for almost $1,000! A big thank you to them.

3 months till Kickoff!!

  1. I love how the $964 UCEF grant is reduced to almost a footnote in favor of new members. :P
