The First Robotics Competition for 2014 began on January 4.  Our task for this year is to design and build a robot that can retrieve and throw a ball into a target. The best way to describe the event itself is a makeshift 3-on-3 robot basketball game. Cadets Spencer and Ramsbey, W. are leading the project's software component while Cadet Scranton is assisting with the actual construction of the robot.

Our team has a total of six weeks to complete the project and we have used up four of those weeks already, with one week being lost to snow and ice.  With only two weeks remaining the team will have to ramp up our efforts to meet the deadline. Our competition will take place in Myrtle Beach at the end of February.
