Demonstration at Houston Rockets Game

Team 624 (Cinco Ranch High School Robotics Team) was invited to demonstrate our “Rebound Rumble” robot’s basketball shooting skills, at Houston Rockets game, on December 22, 2012. Team 624 along with Team 118 (Clear Lake ISD Robotics Team) demonstrated robot mobility and shooting skills, in the central courtyard of the Toyota Center, prior to the Houston Rockets game.As the crowd gathered and cheered for the game, students were able to discuss and demonstrate the concepts and outcomes of what a FIRST Robotics Challenge was all about. Throughout the demonstration, the students encouraged the involvement and participation of young Rockets fans to feed basketballs to the robot and work the controllers to shoot baskets.After the shooting demonstration, Team 624 members (a group of more than 60 students) went on to watch the Rockets win in grand fashion over the Grizzles. As the next big event of the season, we all wait eagerly for the Jan 5, 2013 kickoff of the 2013 FIRST Challenge!
