This past Saturday’s kickoff event marked the beginning of our Build Season journey. All the 40 high school students and many mentors eagerly watched 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 analyzed the components of the 2020 FIRST Robotics Competition game, Infinite Recharge. The team did a group reading of the game manual, analyzed the field in which the game will be played, and discussed scoring and potential strategies to win with the most amount of points possible. This year’s game will require the robot to intake, score power cells (balls) into a “Power Port”, and manipulate control panels (colored disks which must be rotated a certain amount of times) to activate stages of the shield generator (structure to climb on). Here are links to the video of the game animation and the main web page which includes details about the game.
