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!

Andrew will be following up with a more detailed post about this past weekend's competition, but I just wanted to give you guys and overview of how it turned out!

We ended up winning 6 matches and losing 5. At the end, we were ranked 23 out of 43 teams- that's a record number of teams for Saint Louis- and though we did not get chosen for an elimination rounds alliance, we managed to balance on the bridge as well as get our autonomous mode working. There were a few complications with the arm at some points during the day, but our amazing build and programming teams got that all smoothed out. Overall we were very happy with how the weekend went!
