Team 2084 will compete in the Savage Soccer competition at Worcester Polytechnic Institute on November 23, 2013. This is a competition with the VEX robots. We were the champions last year, our rookie year! It's an exciting event. The kickoff that introduces this year's challenge is Saturday, Oct. 19 at WPI. We will start designing and building the VEX robot after school starting the week of October 21. Hope to see you there!
The FIRST 2014 Kick Off is on January 4, 2014 in Manchester, NH. This is when the 2014 challenge will be revealed. Plan to attend! From that day until "Stop Build" day on Tuesday, February 18 (during February vacation), we will work as much as possible on our new robot. There's lots of work and we need lots of people to do it.
The competition schedule has changed from previous years. We will compete at two New England district events. The first is at University of New Hampshire on March 6-7, and the second is at Northeastern University on March 28-29. If we do well enough at these two events, we will qualify for the district finals held on April 10-12 at Boston University. The winners of the district finals go on to the national championship in St. Louis on April 24-26.
