TEAM 4021 in 2015. What Are We Doing?
Robotics is in full swing. On January 3, 2015, igKnightion traveled to Rochester, Minnesota for the kickoff. We found out the new challenge is Recycle Rush. the match consists of two alliances, Red and Blue made up of 3 teams each.
This year's game, "Recycle Rush", is a recycling themed game played by two Alliances of three robots each. Robots score points by stacking totes on scoring platforms, capping those stacks with recycling containers, and properly disposing of pool noodles, representing litter. In keeping with the recycling theme of the game, all game pieces used are reusable or recyclable by teams in their home locations or by FIRST at the end of the season. A lot of work needs to be done before the regional competition in Milwaukee. Team 4021 has practices nearly every day of the week, for multiple hours each day.
The drive chassis is complete and we have written a code capable for maneuvering the robot. We still have a lot to build before our regional scrimmage on February 15th that we will host at Luther. There we will practice with teams from area schools.This year we are inviting 20 teams. and will be able to learn from our mistakes. After that it will be a trip to Milwaukeefor the regional competition on March 20th and 21st, and hopefully to Nationals.
