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!

Today's the day. The final day. The day on which we must finish the robot.

As of now, the robot is in a fully assembled state. The feeder arm is attached, the electronics are all set, and the robot can drive. The arm also moves.

We think that this will be the first year that we will be able to participate in a few practice matches at competition prior to the actual rounds. In past years we have always spent that time finishing the robot- but lo and behold, we finished the robot this year! The only thing left to do is finish programming and tweak the arm so that it can effectively pick up frisbees. Dan is working on finishing programming the cRio, and Mike, Marquise and Walter are finishing mechanical stuff. So, it's go time! Let's go RoboLions!
