The 2019-20 Robotics Season is officially underway!
The Marlborough robotics program competes in a global competition called FIRST Technical Challenge (FTC). In this competition, students from grades 7-12 work in teams to design, build, program, and pilot robots to compete head to head against teams from our region and around the world. On September 7th, representatives from the FOUR Marlborough roboticsteams attended a kickoff for the new robot game: SKYSTONE.
In Skystone, students are challenged to construct the tallest possible skyscraper out of brick-like game elements called ‘stones.’ Check out the official game video here.
Our four robotics teams (Marlbots, Curiosity, Cosmos, and Asteria) started off the season at the LA FTC Kickoff. They have already begun the design process, and are excited about the new season.
Since kickoff, the teams have been working hard to analyze the game, develop strategies, and generate robot concepts for each game task. They will need to work quickly to prepare for their first League Meet on November 2nd. Check out their full schedule below:
