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 5 FLL Teams. 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.
2014 FRC Game:
AERIAL ASSISTSM is played by two competing Alliances of three robots each on a flat 25’ x 54’ foot field, straddled by a truss suspended just over five feet above the floor. The objective is to score as many balls in goals as possible during a two (2)-minute and 30-second match. The more Alliances score their ball in their goals, and the more they work together to do it, the more points their Alliance receives. Read more about the game.
