The new FIRST® season is 'Game Changers' and specifically for FTC, it is 'Ultimate Goal.'
For the game this year, robots must shoot rings into goal slots to earn points. However, there's an extra challenge, robots must launch the rings from at least 4 feet away!
Team Fusion 4133 is an independent robotics team located in Helena, MT. Fusion strives to participate within the spirit of FIRST® ; we want everyone to learn the value of teamwork and Gracious Professionalism as well as be involved, share ideas and contribute to the team.
The mission of FIRST® is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders and innovators, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.
So far this year, our team has been setting up for the new season. We've set up our new engineering notebook format. We've also finally made a working shooter prototype! Go check that out on our YouTube. @4133Fusion
Additionally, our team has been making face shields for our local college, Carroll. We're hoping to provide face shields to most of the nursing department there very soon.
