Welcome to the 2013 FIRST Robotics Competition Season

Welcome to another year of FIRST Robotics. Today was the kickoff for the 2013 FIRST Robotics Competition Season.

This year’s challenge looks to be a good one. You can head on over to the FIRST Robotics website to see what it is all about. You can also head over to FIRST’s youtube channel to watch some videos about this year’s challenge including the game animation or you can watch the animation by clicking on the play button below.

We will be building a robot that can throw a Frisbee and then climb a tower.

Team 1557 met at our clubhouse after the kickoff and started brainstorming some ideas. Everyone agreed that it is going to be a fun year.
