2019 FIRST Kickoff

On January 5th, Team 3303 assembled at our workspace to watch the game reveal that FIRST broadcasted to teams all around the globe. This season, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11’s moon landing, the game is space-themed (click here for game animation).

Immediately after watching the game reveal, the entire team began reading the game manual. Once every member had finished reading, the team prioritized which tasks we wanted our robot to do. Then we broke into 3 groups of 4-5 students, where we brainstormed how to accomplish our objectives.

Our plan is to continue brainstorming and prototyping until next Friday, where each design group will present its ideas. After every group has presented, the entire team will vote on which mechanism ideas we want to design and build.
