On Saturday 1/9/16, RAGE, along with more than 3,000 other teams across the world found out what the 2016 game is (Thanks to Team MAX 1071 and Wolcott High School for hosting the kickoff!). STRONGHOLD is a mix of old and new – medieval defenses, charging the castle and launching “boulders” at the enemy. The “new” is doing it with modern technology – a robot that can traverse over rough terrain and moats, open gates, pick up boulders and finally climb the tower. With changing defenses and audience participation, the competitions are sure to be exciting!
For all of the details, please go here!. At the FIRST website you can find the game manual, the kickoff video and all sorts of useful information.
It didn’t take long before the team was together strategizing, deciphering the rules and figuring out which items to focus on.
Here we go…..
