US Robotics
Advisor: Mr. Douglas

Open to Students in Grades: 9-12
Meeting Time: Schedule Varies

Description: A select team of 9 Upper School students is participating in the FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) Robotics challenge this year. They are tasked with designing, building, and programming a robot to accomplish specific tasks on a playing field within a specific time frame. This year’s theme is “Ring It Up!” The game is played on a 12’x12’ diamond shaped field. Two alliances comprised of two teams each, compete in matches consisting of a 30 second autonomous period followed by a two-minute driver controlled period. The object of the game is to score more points than your opponent’s alliance by placing plastic rings onto pegs on the center rack. Teams will also be challenged to detect special “weighted” rings to earn a special multiplier bonus. The Rivermont Collegiate FTC team will compete at the Putnam Museum on February 2, 2013.
