2012 Rebound Rumble

History  :  2012 Graduates    2012 Competition

2012 – Rebound Rumble


The Rebound Rumble robotics game is played between two Alliances of three teams each. Each Alliance competes by trying to score as many of the  basketballs in the hoops as possible during the 2-minute and 15-second match. Balls scored in higher hoops score Alliances more points. Alliances are awarded bonus points if they are balanced on bridges at the end of the match. In matches where opponent Alliances work together to balance on the white bridge, all participating teams earn additional valuable seeding points.


“Plan B” our Robot

This is our FIRST season attempting to build a practice bot as well as a full competition robot. We worked out a wonderful plan that came to pass much too late in the season. We still managed to construct dually named “Plan B,” since our primary plans fell through. Our original robot “Plan A,” did finally come in from our sponsors and we still plan on finishing it for demonstrations and to continue the learning experiences that FIRST provides as a multitude of opportunities to accomplish.
