Rockford Rovers won the Rookie Team Award at the 2017 FIRST Rockford Illinois Qualifying Tournament on Saturday, December 2.
During our inaugural season we built and programmed a Lego Mindstorm robot which could perform three “missions” and could consistently score 50 points during competition table runs.
In addition to building a robot, the year’s game challenge, HYDRODYNAMICS, asked to students to explore a problem related to the human water cycle. Our project focused on improving the activated sludge process in a wastewater treatment plant.
