2023 FRC SCRap event

Our teams decided to build a FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) robot to compete in the FIRST South Carolina SCRAP offseason event held in Sumter on July 15, 2023. Our robot went from a pile of parts to a functioning robot in just a few work sessions. Our students learned quickly about the game strategy. They fought arm gearing problems all day but never gave up. When their robot worked, it did great! Time to work on a few improvements for the SCRIW FRC offseason event in October.
