This first year, under the name Pyrotechnics, we had to design a robot for the FIRST Competition theme “Breakaway”. It was a daunting task to build a robot in just six weeks. Just like other rookie teams, we ran into our fair share of problems and we learned a lot! Our biggest accomplishment was completing our very first robot and going to a competition. Now that we had some of the basics of the first year under our belt, we were ready to take on the next challenge.
