This past Saturday’s kickoff event that we hosted, joined by the DevilBotz (Team 2876) from Burlington and the Titans (Team 1474) from Tewksbury, marked the beginning of our Build Season journey. After some delicious breakfast, all the 40 high school students and many mentors eagerly entered the cafeteria to watch the live stream of the new game animation that was to be released; we were even joined by many of our alumni to guide us through the process. We then split up into several different groups to analyze the components of the 2019 FIRST Robotics Competition game, Destination: Deep Space; we discussed the game manual, the field which the game will be played on, scoring, and even potential strategies to win with the most amount of points possible. This year’s game will require the robot to intake, manipulate, and lift cargo (balls) and hatch panels (discs) into rockets and cargo ships. More information and a game analysis will be posted next week, so stay tuned for that! Until then, here are links to the video of the game animation and the main web page which includes details about the game.
