PCA’s Robotics team, The Atoms Family, begins their six-week build today for the First Robotic Challenge 2016. The team attended the official 2016 kickoff today at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, where they learned about this year’s challenge. This year’s game, FIRST Stronghold, is made up of two alliances of three robots each that are on a quest to breach their opponents’ fortifications, weaken their tower with boulders, and capture the opposing tower. Robots score points by breaching opponents’ defenses and getting boulders through goals in the opposing tower. During the final 20 seconds of the Quest, robots may surround and scale the opposing tower to capture it. Click HERE to view the animated version of the game. Stay tuned for regular updates as The Atoms Family makes their way through the exciting months ahead!
