On January 3rd, our team met at the Innovation Connector to find out what our game objective for 2015 would be. This year is Recycle Rush!
RECYCLE RUSH is a recycling-themed game played by two Alliances of three robots each. Robots score points by stacking totes on scoring platforms, capping those stacks with recycling containers, and properly disposing of pool noodles, representing litter. In keeping with the recycling theme of the game, all game pieces used are reusable or recyclable by teams in their home locations or by FIRST at the end of the season.
Learning the Rules and Brainstorming
After the big game reveal, we spend the day learning the rules and discussing possible strategies.
