And They Are Off

Immaculata's FIRST Cold Fusion Team 1279's robotics season just began with the nation-wide reveal of this year's challenge. Led by faculty members Al Kedersha and John Wilder, the team will participate in INFINITE RECHARGE. The team builds the robot for several weeks and then beginning in March, competes on a district and regional level. At the matches two alliances work to protect FIRST City from approaching asteroids, caused by a distant space skirmish. Each alliance, along with their trusty droids, race to collect and score Power Cells in order to energize their Shield Generator for maximum protection. To activate stages of the Shield Generator, droids manipulate their Control Panels after scoring a specific number of Power Cells. Near the end of the match, droids race to their Rendezvous Point to get their Shield Generator operational in order to protect the city!

Pretty amazing feats!
