FIRST Kickoff 2010

Saturday was the big day, Kickoff for FIRST Robotics. This is the day we find out what the mission for our robot will be, and then we have six weeks to design and build it. I should not say we, but the team, Team 340. This year the game is called breakaway, which in effect is robotic socceer.It looks simple, but with so many variables, it will be a challenge. At least the scoring seems simple.
This is a great example of project based learning, as I wrote about last year. Watching the students think, develop ideas, test, work together is great, 3 meetings a is worth it.
