Incredibly proud of FHS Robotics! Yesterday we had 2 teams compete in #SavageSoccer at #WPI and had one robot make it to the finals, ultimately coming in 2nd! #STEAM #teamwork pic.twitter.com/b0ujGOOebO— Alyssa Taranto (@MsTaranto) November 17, 2019
What is savage soccer?
"Savage Soccer began in 1995 and has continued since as an annual event hosted at WPI. Initially created as part of a university project (IQP), it is now coordinated each year by WPI students in their free time.Continue reading about Savage Soccer at WPI https://users.wpi.edu/~savage/About/
Savage Soccer is designed to help students learn about basic robotics principles and teamwork. The original focus was a way to get students 'psyched up' for the FIRST Robotics Competition. From its inception through the 2001 game, it challenged students to modify a radio controlled car with authorized parts that could best perform certain tasks like moving ping pong balls into goals while avoiding obstacles and other hazards. In 2002, the kits became more advanced as we started using the Robovation/Vex kits to make for a better competition and a more realistic version of FIRST. Each year the game is modified to present new goals and challenges for teams to test their creative abilities."
