Say hello to this year's FIRST Tech Challenge game: Velocity Vortex! This year teams will need to design a robot to manipulate both small softball-size "particles" (wiffle balls) and a large "cap ball" (small yoga balls). By analyzing the game and the point distribution, teams will need to decide whether they want to lift, launch, or push balls in order to score on this new field.
Here are some resources your team can use to be successful this season:
- Official FTC Game Manuals (Pt. 1 and Pt. 2)
- Official Game Animation
- FIRST Fundraising Toolkit
- Programming and Technology Resources
Let us know what your team think of this new game in the comments, and share your tips for a successful season!
