Exit 5 Robotics’ Visits Liberty Science Center Again for their 2nd year of RoboCup Junior

Exit 5 Robotics took another shot at RoboCup Junior this week.  For this effort, the team added 2 new team members, bringing the team count up to 8 girls.  With a few days of preparation, the team did get a working robot in place the night before the event.  The team participated in “Rescue A, Primary School” for ages up to 14.  The Rescue A challenge is develop a robot to autonomously  navigate several rooms, avoid obstacles, find a patient, and rescue the patient by bringing them to a rescue area.  The actual playing on the competition day presented quite a few surprises for the all the teams.  The Exit 5 girls reprogrammed and modified their robot furiously in the 2 hours allotted for changes.  Although the team did not place with an award, they did learn quite a bit from their experience and came away with valuable lessons for future competitions.  The team finished up the day exploring Liberty Science Center and walking the high ropes course on construction I-beams 20ft above the ground.
