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!

Open House Pictures

Just wanted to share some pictures from the Open House today. We had a great turnout, and everyone seemed very interested. All said that they were definitely joining the team. It's going to be a great season!

                     Becoming familiar with the FTC parts

The newbies get a talk from Mrs. Adewale about engineering as a career

All in all, it was a successful meeting. Students got to learn about FIRST, they got to play with the kit of parts and get familiar with the pieces that they will be using, a few got to check out programming software, and of course, everyone got snacks.

Great meeting, guys! Can't wait to see everyone next week at Robotics Boot Camp! :)
