The 2015 game was released this past Saturday and Epsilon Delta is well under way in the planning process.
We started the weekend off with our annual Kickoff breakfast where we enjoyed some waffles, games, and the new challenge this year, Recycle Rush!
Students eagerly waiting for “the big reveal”.
The next day we created our mini field and began our “Stubots” strategy planning meeting. During this time students act as the robots in our make-shift field to help us not only better understand the rules of the game, but figure out what does or doesn’t work in it We had lots of fun and began to break down what exactly we want our robot to be able to do. We’re excited to see what this season will bring, and we want to give a big thank you to Team 5338 – Robo Loco for joining us and giving their input on the game as well!

From Dave Lavery’s Facebook Page:
“A few outtakes from tests of our catapult subsystem for our entry in the 2014 FIRST Robotics Competition. We spent the afternoon test firing calibration shots to evaluate the catapult configuration and get the desired loft and distance.”
On Saturday, Team 116—Epsilon Delta, Herndon High School’s robotics team—held its annual kickoff event and breakfast to introduce the team to the local community, and to find out just what is in store for them this year, for their annual challenge.
Team 116 is Herndon’s chapter ofFIRST, a nonprofit association that stands for “For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology.”
