Rack N Roll Archive Page
Rack ‘N’ Roll was Team# 2219’s thrust into FIRST Robotics. In the fall of 2006 our team learned basic robotics concepts with the aid of two Vex Kits and the team mentors; Three college students from Southern Illinois University Carbondale. Through sheer will, our robot was completed and shipped to competition; no small feat for a rookie team. We had no major corporate sponsors, we did not even have a machine shop until 3 weeks into the build season when we bought a mill/lathe. Our robot was not the prettiest or most efficient at the game, but it was done and running. It was a shining example of “make it work.” We had everything but the kitchen sink on the bot; garage door springs, wood, silastic tubing…you name it we tried it.
Most importantly though, it (the robot) was a source of pride for our team and our school. Brehm is a small school; there are FRC teams bigger than our entire student body. Our rookie year was a learning experience, mostly of what not to do, for both our team members and team mentors.
This page is our season archive for our rookie year.
