Kickoff 2016

The 2016 season has begun! On January 9th, 37 students and 30 mentors and parents joined us for the season kickoff.

The game this year is entitled Stronghold and has a castle theme. Teams need to cross four out of five barriers twice each to breach their opponents defenses and shoot “boulders” into an opponent’s castle to weaken it in order to capture it at the end of the match.

A brief description of the game and a visual of the field can be found here on the FIRST website. The game release video has been posted on YouTube.

The new game looks like it will have lots of opportunities for exciting play and the team is hard at work on strategies and designs.
