- GHS Robotics FIRST Team 2560 Get Ready for the 2013 FRC Competition on March 14 at Hale Arena in Kansas City, MO
The GHS FIRST Team 2560 Robotics Team been hard at work designing and building a robot that can shoot Frisbees and climb a ten foot tall pyramid. It seems funny because as the RoboDOG we should be fetching Frisbees instead of throwing them. Coaches Clark Vance and Ian Young are working hard with the team to get a top quality robot for competition. GHS seniors that graduated last year have returned as mentors to give the team members tips on what needs to be done.
Adelkies (Former GHS Student and Graduate Mentor), CJ (Sophomore), and other freshmen have been working on the base, wheels, and motors. Coach Young, some of our newer students, and a few mentors have been working on perfecting the shooter. Austin and our mentor David have been working on the programming that will control the robot. The team has their own robotics room to spread out and work much more easily.
