Mason students wait patiently before the live video of the 2015 First Robotics Kick Off begins.
The moment you've been waiting for," said Frank Merrick, director of the First Robotics Competition or FRC, as he revealed the game for the 2015 FRC Robotics tournament during the the Kickoff Saturday January 5th, 2014 at Woodrow Wilson High School.
Robotics is a well known club at Mason that brings on a challenge to a group of kids and encourages the use of STEM in order to solve problems. Each year, a certain game/challenge is released at Kickoff and high school students all around the country are given 6 weeks to build their best designed robot in order to tackle the challenge. The very close but successful tournament last year left Mason Robotics, Team #1418, in 2nd place both at regionals in Richmond and at George Mason University.
