Video: Can Your Robot Play Basketball?

Athenian’s Engineering Collective competed in the FIRST Robotics Silicon Valley Regional Competition in March.  In this year’s challenge, Rebound Rumble, students built a robot that could shoot baskets while defending opponent robots.

This is a clip from Qualification match 33 from FRC Silicon Valley Regional 2012.  Athenian’s robot is 852, a blue robot in the lower left hand corner at the start of the video.  Athenian scores a basket at 1:32!

Athenian came in 11th place in the 2012 competition, out of more than 50 teams.
