What a ride the season has been so far. We realized we hadn’t posted an update to the Guess the Game game. Galactic Squirrels up in Gainesville won!

Meeting online at the start of the season, we moved to in person meetings by late September, and have been meeting in-person and online ever since, masked and with lots of hand sanitizing.

It was a rocky Rover Ruckus for us this season, and while our robot couldn’t quite rise to the occasion, we did! At the ROBOT League Championship this past weekend, we earned the Connect Award, and the 7th slot for Florida FIRST Tech Challenge State Championship participation in our League.
We’ve been so busy since kick-off in early September, we haven’t had a chance to post an update until now.
First of all, congratulations to Marcus of KNO3 for taking home the duct tape Minion in recognition of his great Rover Ruckus game guess, in our annual Guess the Game challenge! And second, Rover Ruckus is pretty awesome. The object of the game is to attain a higher score than the opposing alliance by descending from a central platform called “the Lander”, collecting Minerals (blocks and balls) from the Crater, sorting and scoring Minerals into the Cargo Hold of the Lander, performing Autonomous tasks, and navigating to specific parts of the Playing Field. You can see the Rover Ruckus game animation and other related game specs on our Library page.
