FIRST Robotics Competion

The FIRST Robotics Competiton

Under strict rules, limited resources, and the guidance of volunteer mentors including engineers, teachers, business professionals, parents, alumni and more, teams of 25+ students have just six weeks to build and program robots to perform challenging tasks against a field of competitors. They must also raise funds, design a team "brand," hone teamwork skills, and perform community outreach. In addition to learning valuable STEM and life skills, participants are eligible to apply for $50+ million in college scholarships.

POWER UP Season

LINKS is hard at work for this build season. The team has considered a multitude of strategies and mechanisms to be competitive at the PCH District Championship and FIRST Championship level. 4468 will follow its tradition of building robust robots that excel at a certain task in the game. In Power Up, that means focusing on cycling Power Cubes into the SWITCH and EXCHANGE. The 4468 robot reveal video will be published on the FIRST Updates Now reveal night special.
