This year’s competition, “RECYCLE RUSH,” emphasizes design creativity and robot dexterity. Two teams (“alliances”) of three 120 lb. robots each race to see which alliance can pick up and stack rectangular plastic totes, circular plastic recycling cans (“recycling containers”), and soft pool noodles (“litter”) onto scoring platforms in the allotted time. Matches comprise a 15-second autonomous period and two minutes tele-operated by students. For the first time, there are no limits on how wide a robot can expand and we may see some very creative designs. Spectators are welcome to tour the pits and see the robots up close. SFRM Business Manager Gary Koerzendorfer mentors three teams: 668 (Pioneer and Los Gatos High Schools), 2643 (Santa Teresa HS), and 5027 (Andrew Hill HS).
