The kickoff event for the 2015 robotics team was held in Grand Rapids at the GVSU campus. This year’s game is Recycle Rush (last year’s game was Aerial Assist). Our club, the Gobles Voltage, has six weeks to build a robot to compete at district events in March. This year’s recycle-themed game consists of two alliances that each have three robot teams squaring off against each other. The robots stack totes that represent recycling containers and dispose of pool noodles which represent litter. The team isscheduled to work with mentors from the Gobles community.
