The Green Machine held its own this weekend at Roseville Area High School for the Minnesota Robotics Invitational event. This was a great experience for rookies to see what FIRST Robotics Competitions are all about. Returning team members got to reminisce about last year’s game, Aerial Assist. Many great moments occurred including the rookies getting to watch the repairs on ZEKE as well as participate in driving the robot on the field. One of our captains, Peter H., stated that he was “pleasantly surprised” at the new talent in driving he saw from our 2014-15 rookies. The Green Machine ended qualifications as the #1 seed, and had the pleasure of picking 3 more teams to join its alliance.
