January 7th, FIRST Team 501 met and watched the NASA’s broadcast of the unveiling of the 2012 game. Rebound Rumble, this year’s game, is similar to basketball, and robots must score points by putting foam basketballs through hoops. Bonus points can be obtained by robots balancing on angled ramps. Many of us were excited to finally see this year’s game, and can’t wait to get started.
