Blue Sky Spring Fundraising

The RoboRaiders met at Blue Sky on 4th street to help fundraising for our team. We invited parents, friends, friends of friends, and all joined together to help raise money. We sold Hex Bugs like we do every year, and the event was a fun success!

RoboRaider’s Kick-Off 2014

On January 4th, we met bright and early at Lubbock High School to celebrate the beginning of a new FRC season! All 16 present teams sat down and watched the worldwide broadcast announcing this year’s game: Aerial Assist. As soon as the video ended, we went straight to work, brainstorming and designing our robot’s manipulator and drivetrain (so many decisions!). We have a feeling this is going to be a great season!
