FTC Workday

This morning, some of the students and mentors met in the robot room to focus on the design of the 208 team robot for the upcoming First Tech Challenge (c). This year’s competition, “Cascade Effect,”  involves three periods, including autonomous and driver-controlled periods, in which the teams can score points by accomplishing tasks such as knocking over the kickstand holding dozens of plastic balls, moving rolling goals, and scoring balls in the goals. Here is the official video explaining each of the game periods:

Today’s major objective was to build a replica of the game field and the base of the robot.
