Starting January 9th, the Clearview Cybergnomes, a team of high school students from across Simcoe County, have been working on designing and building a robot to play in the international FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC). Working closely with industry mentors, the team has just 6 weeks to fully design, prototype, CAD, fabricate, assemble and program a fully functioning 120 pound robot. For the past two years the Cybergnomes have made it to the World Championships in St. Louis. This fundraising event will help provide them with the resources needed to continue that success.
The 2016 FRC game, STRONGHOLD, challenges students to build a robot to breach a number of physical defenses in their opponent’s outer wall including a portcullis, drawbridge, sally port, moat, and rough terrain. The team must also launch boulders at their opponents castle, scoring hits and weakening it’s defenses. Once weakened, the tower can be captured as robots storm it’s base and scale the castle wall. A three on three game of climbing, shooting and maneuvering, FIRST STRONGHOLD, will be an exciting challenge for our local robotics team.
