January 7th KICK-OFF for the 2017 season for teams participating in the FIRST Robotics Competition worldwide, so we'll be showing the eagerly awaited official video from FIRST Robotics in the high school theater, announcing this year’s competitive game which has a retro videogame theme this year! We'll have just 6 weeks to design and build a robot player for the game before competitions begin! Those who come to the event will not only will enjoy a fabulous dinner, but will be supporting the scientists, engineers, and leaders of tomorrow!.
Hall-Dale’s team, REM Delta Prime Robotics #4473 is a member of FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC), an international high school robotics competition that gives students real-world engineering experience. FRC combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. Under strict rules, limited resources, and time limits, teams of students are challenged to raise funds, design a team "brand," hone teamwork skills, and build and program robots to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors. It’s as close to "real-world engineering" as a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team. Delta Prime needs to raise up to $40,000 each year to enter and participate in the competitions, many of which require the team to travel out of state.
