RECYCLE RUSH℠ is a recycling-themed game played by two Alliances of three robots each. Robots score points by stacking totes on scoring platforms, capping those stacks with recycling containers, and properly disposing of pool noodles, representing litter. In keeping with the recycling theme of the game, all game pieces used are reusable or recyclable by teams in their home locations or by FIRST® at the end of the season. During the build season, our team was able to create a robot that, along with the performance of our drivers and human player, placed second at the Northern Lights Regional Competition in Duluth, Minnesota. Along with this, we were able to greatly expand our business and community outreach departments as well as win the UL Safety Award at the same aforementioned competition.
