All-Iowa Scrimmage

I apologize for the lateness of this post, but building a robot takes a lot of time. Last Saturday, we were invited by 525 Swartdogs to participate in the All-Iowa scrimmage. This was a great time to test out our robot, practice driving, and see other Iowa teams’ robots. While our robot was broken for most of the day, we learned a lot and had a lot of fun. Thanks Swartdogs!

2015 Game: Recycle Rush

This year’s game is called Recycle Rush. 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.

This is the game video introducing this year’s game.

We made good use of kickoff day. After watching the kickoff broadcast, we read through the rules and strategized.
