High School Robotics Competition – CalGames 2010

This Friday and Saturday, October 22-23, students from thirty-six Northern California high school Robotics teams compete at the Western Region Robotics Forum’s CalGames 2010 Robotics Competition held at Lynbrook High School in San Jose.

The CalGames 2010 Robotics Competition is a contest between 36 teams of high school students to build full-sized robots each weighing up to 140 lbs and are capable of going over 15 feet per second that attempt to score goals with soccer balls while maneuvering over bumps and through tunnels.

The Western Region Robotics Forum (WRRF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the use of robotics and providing support for the Bay Area FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) robotics teams. WRRF recently conducted a series of workshops for FIRST teams covering a wide range of subjects, including team management, electronics, machine vision, computer animation, drive train design, and software development. Students discover the value of education and careers in science, technology, and math.
