Highlights these exciting past few months for Exploding Bacon.
4-H Exploding Bacon Robotics is a FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition (FRC) team based in Orlando, Florida with 3 FLL Teams and a Jr. FLL team. Adults serve as mentors to guide the student members in team management, engineering, computer programming, and essential leadership skills. The goal is to inspire students to pursue degrees in science, technology, engineering and math while teaching them gracious professionalism.
2015 FRC Game:
RECYCLE RUSH SM is a recycling-themed game played by two Alliances of three robots each. Robots score points by stacking totes on scoring platforms, capping those stacks with recycling containers, and properly disposing of pool noodles, representing litter. In keeping with the recycling theme of the game, all game pieces used are reusable or recyclable by teams in their home locations or by FIRST at the end of the season. Read more about the game.
